Loss of human life due to stampedes is common the world over. While crowd managers are deployed at identified locations, sometimes it becomes difficult for them to reach another location where commotion may be arising resulting in jostling and spreading of panic. This system uses live video coverage and processes it frame by frame, identifying potential areas where crowd surge or visible commotion may be there. Thus the crowd managers can be directed to these identified spots to manage the crowd. The system uses MATLAB image processor and sends message alerts using PIC microcontrollers.
