Is technology and advanced software changing the way we build?

Published:  25 April, 2018

We’ve come a long way since the traditional methods of building and with the advancements in technology, we’ve never looked back. Together with Oasys, we consider how software has been used in the planning process of city spaces.

Managing a crowd

Crowd simulation is a type of software that is often used in urban planning projects. It is capable of simulating thousands of people so that they can be imported into digital models of city spaces. The simulated agents can act intelligently according to set guidelines.

Businesses around the world are taking advantage of the opportunities presented by this type of software. For architects designing a new building or arena that has the potential to host thousands of people, this technology can be used to simulate an evacuation. The crowd can be monitored to see what collisions they come across and how well they can achieve the goal of escaping the building.

This software can be used to help plan for emergency situations, whether this is in a shopping complex or a transport interchange to ensure the safety of those within the build. With the rise of terror incidents across Europe, the use of crowd simulation and preparing for unlikely situations is more important than ever.
