Predicting how large numbers of visitors to major events will behave is difficult. To prevent disasters, however, the police, rescue services and event organizers have to be able to identify dangerous bottlenecks, hidden obstacles and unexpected escape routes in advance. A research group with scientists from Technische Universitaet Muenchen (Germany) has developed a simulator that can be used to compute different scenarios. The program can simulate the behavior of tens of thousands of people.
