CAMPUS & EVENTS

We demand more from our buildings. We want more flexibility, quality and security. And while we are at it, costs should fall continuously while efficiency increases. How can we meet these constantly increasing requirements?
We believe in efficiency through better information. Resources can be used more specifically when required and can be on site more quickly in the event of an incident.

Campus, Events and Buildings

University & Business Campus

As campuses continue to grow, so do the demands on the buildings and facilities. Staff and students alike will soon come to expect a new experience. Whether it’s displaying canteen wait times, free study places, or navigating security measures in a COVID world, the path forward is through crowd control and active building management.

Capacity occupancy and waiting times

Capacity occupancy and waiting times

If I leave now, will there be a seat available for me in the lecture hall? What about wait times at the canteen? The Campus App offers staff and students these benefits and more with real-time information to help ensure they stay productive and efficient. The data can be freely integrated through in-house web interfaces via an API.


Queue monitor and staff alert

Queue monitor and staff alert

Long queues deter people. ASE’s queue monitor increases waiting time acceptance by displaying current waiting time in a method proven to help increase turnover and customer satisfaction. Our queue monitor can also be combined with staff alarms, meaning that staff present can quickly attend to checkouts and respond to growing queues efficiently.

Campus Crowd Monitor

Campus Crowd Monitor

ASE’s Crowd Monitor automatically limits the number of people in buildings or rooms. This saves on security personnel costs and ensures compliance with health authority standards.

Sensors placed at the entrance and exits count passing foot traffic. Once it reaches the maximum permitted number, visitors are then requested to wait before a light or monitor. The Crowd Monitor is also compatible with automatic doors to prevent access in such cases.


Facility Management Suite

Facility Management Suite

Customer satisfaction and efficiencies are what determine how well a facility is managed. ASE’s Facility Management Suite helps deliver on both with a data-driven approach to optimisation. A web application provides real-time data on the status of the facilities while also continually monitoring the need for staff interventions. Through the use of an app, staff can remain informed of what tasks need to be done and which have been completed.

This approach ensures staff intervene effectively and minimise disruption in the event of maintenance or incidents. Thanks to machine learning algorithms, the Facility Management Suite balances out resources optimally via a range of mechanisms — whether that’s proactively shifting resources in downtime to avoid future issues, or saving costs by limiting regular maintenance in off-peak times. For increased functionality like demand-orientated maintenance, the Facility Management Suite can also be combined with our Pedestrian Analytics System and other data sources.

EVENTS

Crowds are a wonderful thing at a football match, but in a COVID hotspot, they may heighten the risk of infection. Whatever the event, and whatever the capacity constraints, ASE provides solutions to ensure safety and compliance at mass gatherings.

Trade Show Tracker

Trade Show Tracker

The Trade Show Tracker helps exhibitors and fair organisers optimise effectiveness across the board. With sensor technology mounted on booths, it records the flow of people creating a real-time picture of the number of visitors while also identifying popular places and dead spots.

Sensors also measure and evaluate the length of stay and level of interaction at each booth, and can highlight potential weak points and areas for improvement.


Crowd Manager Sports & Event Halls

Crowd Manager Sports & Event Halls

Crowd safety is the number one priority at many events. ASE’s Crowd Manager for sports and event halls limits and monitors the number of people in high traffic situations.

It informs security staff in real-time of the current numbers and the remaining capacity, allowing them to direct guests to empty sections. The crowd monitor can also control doors and offers an API to update visitors.


Event Planning

Event Planning

The ASE Event Planning Manual helps event organisers coordinate safely. It provides structures, concepts and key figures to help plan walking paths, recreational areas and escape routes. Based on the plans and experiences from comparable events, it identifies the potential risk factors and offers suggestions for improvement.

For added functionality, it enables real-time counting of visitors to help provide effective crowd management during the event.

Buildings

Public-intensive use of buildings confronts us with special challenges. When changing daily use, the functionality of lifts, ventilation or escape routes must be guaranteed. When planning a new building, there is potential for savings through exact dimensioning according to the true requirements. This way you can plan what you need without the risk and costs of under-dimensioning. Proof of functionality under high stress also pays off: within the strict fire protection standards, unnecessary installations can be saved.

Functionality check for existing, public buildings

Functionality check for existing, public buildings

If space is limited in existing buildings and large flows of people are expected, movement flows must be optimally organised. Bottlenecks, backlogs and other obstacles must be identified and prevented as early as possible in the planning process.

ASE develops, tests and optimises utilisation concepts for public-intensive buildings.


Planning optimisation for public buildings

Planning optimisation for public buildings

Before the implementation of a construction project, a planning check is essential. This is the only way to prove that logistics and public facilities are sufficiently dimensioned.

Bottlenecks and waiting times, as they can occur during operation, are identified and described. A variety of solutions are presented. The simulation enables future buildings users to experience the resulting project with detailed visualisations or even in a virtual reality environment. Thus, qualitative impressions are presented and plans are validated. With regard to logistics, selected processes and flows of goods are examined in scenarios. In this way, ASE optimizes existing resources and capacities already in the planning phase.
