Seoul’s Itaewon To Prepare For Halloween With The Alarm System

Yongsan-gu, Seoul, Is Taking Measures Ahead Of Halloween Day (Oct. 31)

On October 13, Yongsan-gu held a joint meeting with the mayor of Yongsan-gu, the chief of Yongsan Police Station, the chief of the Yongsan Fire Department, and the chief of transportation operations of the Seoul Metro to prepare for Halloween Day crowds.

Yongsan-gu Is Planning To Focus On Preventing Safety Accidents For Five Days, From October 27 To November 1

The areas to be prioritized are World Food Culture Street, Itaewon-ro, and Quy Nhơn Road. A joint on-site situation room will be set up at Noksapyeong Station Square, and officials from the district, police, fire, and military will respond together in the event of a large crowd.

Yongsan-gu Will Install The Intelligent Crowd Detection System

The system automatically measures the number of people per unit area through closed-circuit CCTV and alerts you to danger signs.

Crowd detection CCTVs detect density in real time and automatically analyze this information using CCTV video analysis servers. Related information will be displayed on the monitoring screens of the disaster safety situation rooms in Seoul and each autonomous district.

The system will be installed in six locations, including Itaewon World Food Culture Street, Hannam-dong Cafe Street, and Yongnidan-gil.

If the number of people per square meter exceeds 4, the video is analyzed and a warning alarm is triggered, recognizing it as a “critical” stage with a high risk of accidents.
