Project Description

The Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah and Madinah is one of the biggest annual events in the world, where millions of people congregate for religious rituals over several days. However, little research has been carried out to objectively monitor the pilgrims and understand their behavior during the different stages of pilgrimage. The challenges regarding Hajj are of two broader levels. First, of the organizational - global - level; and, second, of the individual level. At the global level, the challenges are of the crowd monitoring and management type. Here, the main concerns revolve around enabling a smooth flow through the activities for the pilgrims, and transporting them from a site to another. The second level, the individual one, is concerned with enabling a safe, healthy and truly spiritual journey through the pilgrimage. To ensure these, a deeper understanding of the whole event, and thus, further, broader-scale studies are needed.
