The S4AllCities project is heading to Pilsen and you will be able to participate!
S4AllCities is an international project supported by the prestigious European grant program for research and innovation Horizon 2020, which aims to reduce the vulnerability of public spaces, mitigate the consequences of terrorist attacks, increase public awareness and achieve a balance between improving security, the functioning of public spaces and the sense of freedom of citizens. Pilsen, represented by the Information Technology Administration of the City of Pilsen, is one of three pilot areas where innovative technological solutions are developed and tested. Other areas are Bilbao in Spain and the city of Trikala in Greece.
The Pilsen pilot simulates a terrorist attack, followed by the evacuation of the FC Viktoria Plzeň stadium.

The Trikala pilot (GR) aims to protect the autonomous bus infrastructure, public buildings and the park that hosts the Trikala Christmas festival.
The Bilbao pilot (ES) focuses on crowd protection during mass gatherings in the city center and at the metro station.
The technologies that will be tested in these locations will be shared with other European partners and it will be possible to apply them in other cities and metropolises as well.
Innovative technologies developed within the project and considered for testing in Pilsen include:
- situation monitoring using drones with RGB and thermal cameras
- detection of unauthorized drones
- intelligent analysis of images from cameras (CCTV, drones) in order to identify suspicious behavior in the crowd, feelings of people, communication using gestures, identification of abandoned luggage, recognition of vehicle license plates, etc.
- Internet of Things sensors monitoring e.g. traffic intensity, speed of the traffic flow (floating card data), condition of buildings and bridges, height of rivers, presence of substances usable for the production of improvised explosive devices, etc.
- edge computing technology
- modeling of future traffic for a crisis scenario, e.g. in case of closure of certain escape and access routes, determination of IZS access routes
- 3D model of the stadium
- stadium evacuation model enabling the simulation of crowd evacuation in the event of a crisis scenario, including dynamic updating according to the changing situation (e.g. impassability of some escape routes)
- fire spread model within the stadium
- user interface (Common Operational Picture, COP) for intervention commanders and IZS units integrating information from individual technologies in order to gain comprehensive awareness of the situation as a basis for intervention management
