Analyzing Pedestrian Crossflow Through Complex Transfer Corridors

Large gatherings which are commonly allied with spatial and temporal constraints possess several managerial challenges. As far as walking is considered as a sustainable mode of pedestrian movement with crowd safety as the core objective, hosting authorities put relentless efforts to analyze crowd dynamics and provide with pre- and during event mobility plans. In this paper, we present our ongoing research about analyzing pedestrian movement of a very large annual gathering, the Hajj, where topographical nature of the hosting city Makkah proffer complex network of straight, circular, Y, L, T shape transfer corridors. Moreover, Hajj crowd diversity in terms of race, age and language makes it more laborious for the hosting authorities to tackle pedestrians crossflow to avoid any possible stampede. As a part of our study, we have..... Read More

UQU GIS Based Navigation System

Umm al Qura University is one of the largest universities in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, having more than one hundred thousand students. The university is situated in a suburb area of Makkah city; around 10 km away from the residential areas, and because of its geographic location, most of the people who are either students, professors, staff, workers, or even visitors enter the university compound on daily basis for different purposes; like studying, teaching, working or perhaps just for a tour, and they all get into the university using vehicles. So, because of the wide area of the university which embeds tens of faculty buildings, scientific and technical research centers, and many other facilities, a huge number of students and visitors cannot reach their desired locations at an appropriate time, and the problem gets double in the first few days of the university startup and that’s because of freshmen students’ enrollment. To solve this problem, an online navigation system is built to help people find their destinations easily..... Read More
