Evacuation exercise at Athens International AirportIn January 2017 a large scale evacuation exercise at Athens International Airport has been organised within the EU-project eVACUATE. HKV acted as exercise leader and head of observation. HKV was responsible for the demonstration of all developed functionality.

About 80 airport employees were available as volunteers to act as a crowd. The exercise demonstrated innovative technologies related to crowd counting, communication about threat assessment, RFID technology, social media alerts and dynamic exit signs showing active evacuation routes.
