Abstract

Guaranteeing safety during mega events has always played a role for organizers, their security guards and the action force. This work was realized to enhance safety at mega events and demonstrations without the necessity of fixed installations. Therefore a low cost monitoring system supporting the organization and safety personnel was developed using cell phone data and social media data in combination with safety concepts to monitor safety during the event in real time. To provide the achieved results in real time to the event and safety personnel an application for a Tablet-PC was established. Two representative events were applied as case studies to test and evaluate the results and to check response and executability of the app on site. Because data privacy is increasingly important, legal experts were closely involved and provided legal support.
