INNOVATIVE TOOLS TO IMPROVE STATION DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT OF CROWDS IN EMERGENCY AND PANIC CONDITIONS
Grant number: LP120200361 | Funding period: 2016 - 2018
This project aims to understand how crowds behave in panic and emergency situations in order to plan evacuation procedures and create the safest designs for our major infrastructures such as large public transport hubs and urban environment.
