Background research

Our products and services are based on 14 years of research and 80 man-years of development on crowd simulation at Utrecht University. The software creates an exact representation of the walkable space in a 3D environment, and applies a five-level framework to this representation to simulate a crowd. It includes advanced features such as social groups, dynamic re-planning when obstacles appear or disappear, density-based crowds, and flow-based movements in crowded situations. uCrowds has won the Academic Startup Competition 2020.
