Abstract: The Love Parade disaster in Duisberg, Germany lead to several deaths and injuries. Disasters like this occur due to the existence of high densities in a limited area. We propose a wearable electronic device that helps reduce such disasters by directing people and thus controlling the density of the crowd. We investigate the design and effectiveness of such a device through an agent based simulation using social force. We also investigate the effect of device failure and participants not paying attention in order to determine the critical number of devices and attentive participants required for the device to be effective.
