Case Study: Real-time people counting at the Rolling Stones Concert, Allegiant Stadium.

The Background

The Rolling Stones concert in Las Vegas was a major event that attracted thousands of fans. The concert was hosted at the Allegiant Stadium and required a crowd management solution, specifically on the Hacienda Pedestrian Bridge. This bridge is usually busy with vehicle traffic, and was closed to cars for the event, converting it into a pedestrian-only pathway between Mandalay Bay and Allegiant Stadium.

The Challenge

Managing the flow of pedestrians over the Hacienda Bridge posed a challenge of which video analytics proves to solve with little effort. Ensuring safety, preventing overcrowding, and maintaining efficient movement were critical. Real-time data on pedestrian numbers was necessary to monitor and control the crowd effectively.

The Solution

Remarks Smart Safety Platform was deployed,  delivering AI-driven video analytics for real-time people counting and traffic analysis. It enabled event organizers to make informed decisions to enhance safety and optimize pedestrian flow for this event and inform future planning proposals.

Installation of Smart Safety Platform: 

The existing cameras on the Hacienda Bridge were connected to the Remarks Smart Safety Platform, which utilized AI algorithms to analyze video feeds in real-time.

Real-Time People Counting: 

Remark’s Smart Safety Platform continuously monitors the number of pedestrians on the bridge, providing real-time data on crowd density, dwell times, movement patterns, flow rates and potential bottlenecks.

Traffic Analysis and Optimisation: 

Based on the AI-driven analysis, the Smart Safety Platform confirmed that closing the bridge to vehicular traffic just before and during the concert hours significantly improves pedestrian flow. The data validated the decision to convert the bridge into a pedestrian walkway, highlighting reduced congestion and increased safety

The results

Enhanced Safety: 

The real-time people counting feature helps prevent overcrowding, whilst ensuring a safe environment for concert-goers.

Optimized Pedestrian Flow: 

The closure of the bridge to vehicles and its conversion into a pedestrian-only zone resulted in smooth and efficient movement of people between Mandalay Bay and Allegiant Stadium.

Informed Decision-Making: 

The Remarks Smart Safety Platform provided actionable insights that allowed event organizers to make data-driven decisions, enhancing the overall event management strategy.
