Perce-Foule is a two-year research project (2017-2018) funded by an Investissement d'Avenir of Labex (ANR-10-LABX-0039-PALM). It investigates the dynamics of intermediate-to-high-density crowds.

Its main goal is to pave the way for a mechanical framework for the dense crowd dynamics, with a physics-based approach combining controlled experiments, modelling, and passive real-life measurements. We will also compare various methods of pedestrian tracking. We are in particular interested in the use of Kinect cameras, which preserve the privacy of the pedestrians.
