Abstract: Modern technology aims not only to make people’s life easier but also more safely. Being in a highly crowded place like stadium, metro stations or holy places on Hajj affects not only the human level of comfort but mainly the human level of safety. Very high Crowd may result on pushing, mass panic, stampede, crowd-crush and causing an overall control loss. The current work introduced a mobile based crowd management system. The system consists of two main parts, the first one is a server side application connected to IP cameras to detect crowd level in certain location(s) while the other one is a mobile application with different users rights to receive alarm from the server side application. The suggested frame work provides an effective method to connect and alert all of the system users immediately, preventing high crowd level danger.
