DHS Awards London Start-Up $160K for Airport Passenger Counting and Measuring System Proof-of-Concept
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) awarded $160,902 to London-based startup CrowdVision Ltd. to develop an integrated proof-of-concept for an airport passenger counting and measuring system for U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
CrowdVision received its Phase 1 award to lead a team that will integrate three technologies currently deployed in various international airports into a single system for CBP queues at airports. CrowdVision’s computer vision and artificial intelligence (AI) technology,

Business Focus Magazine
Here at CrowdVision we are excited to feature in the Business Focus Magazine. The article discusses the work we have been doing with London Stansted Airport and how the data being extracted from our solution is allowing the airport to minimise wait times, keep passengers moving and manage key assets, to name a few.
CrowdVision offers wait time measurement capability but also so much more. We measure a wider set of metrics to allow improved forecasting,
Stopwatches or Sniffers or Sensors or Cameras?
It’s a weird thing. Airports seem to be going to the market saying, “I want to buy some queue measurement sensors” and sometimes even specifying what type of sensor they’re looking for. The trend for defining sensor types (the how) rather than the outcomes, insights, analytics and data they need (the why and what) drives some of us crazy. But it’s a scene that’s out there so we have to engage with it. Here’s a CrowdVision view.
Coping with Crowding – Creating Capacity
We’re constantly hearing airports say, ‘My terminal was designed for 10 million passengers, now I’m at 15 million, we’re growing 10% each year and we’re struggling to cope!’ The same challenge of operating beyond capacity affects tiny and massive airports alike. There is often a planned grand solution to this challenge, like building a new terminal, but this new capacity is inevitably years away and expensive. So how can airports cope with crowding now?
Wait Time Measurement is NOT Enough!
CrowdVision is deployed in many airports to measure how long passengers are waiting. This is important data … but it is NOT enough. Wherever there is a problem there must also be a solution. Waiting is only the problem. So, what is the solution? Well to answer that we need to understand what is causing the waiting.
There are several different types of waiting in airports, arising for different reasons. Firstly, the imposed waitingcaused because people are entering a mandated processing stage in their journey.
CrowdVision Wins at First Ever Airport Shark Tank
In front of an audience of over 130 airport leaders and prestigious judges, CrowdVision won joint first place at the Airport Shark Tank in Silicon Valley, part of the Airport Innovation Forum.
Heathrow partners with CrowdVision to optimise passenger experience in real-time
In June 2016 Heathrow Airport Limited selected Crowd Vision Limited as its Passenger Flow Analytics Partner following a competitive tendering process. An extensive multi-terminal rollout is now in delivery with plans for further phased expansion in the future.
A successful trial of the CrowdVision solution in Terminal 2 / the Airport Operations Centre has already delivered early benefits.
The extended system will measure crowding, queuing and utilisation in check-in and immigration halls,
A Better Way to Manage Airports: Passenger Analytics
Airport managers increasingly face operational challenges from steady passenger growth, terminal congestion, rising costs, and difficulty in funding infrastructure. These factors are a simple recipe for deficient facilities, poor service, and unhappy passengers. However, the emerging field of passenger analytics is beginning to be applied to airports, with highly encouraging results. Passenger analytics offers new tools and processes to help airport managers make more effective decisions that improve airport performance, make better use of terminals,
