Andrew is a co-founder at Dynamic Crowd Measurement Pty Ltd.
He is a crowd management professional with a 40-year history in major event management and crowd security.
Starting Australian Concert and Entertainment security in 1980 and developing the first Australian crowd management course in 1993, Andrew has used this experience to lead research to solve crowd management by measuring the influence of crowd density and flow speed on crowd mood to alert and support in “the minute” action that is required by crowd managers.
This technology replicates what practical crowd managers do, we observe, monitor and intervene when crowd mood becomes negative. So, technology can now help us to replicate the observation stages crowd managers make. The computational power and superior vision of cameras and software do this far more efficiently than humans. This technology can now guide, teach and provide evidence for crowd management support.
