In massive events, minor incidents can cause big tragedies. Therefore, the development of crowd monitoring technologies for risk mitigation has become of great relevance. Thus, we have developed and verified a novel wearable crowd monitoring system that includes processing, communication, and vital signs sensing capabilities (temperature, skin hydration, and heart rate). A novel stretchable Printed Circuit Board (PCB) was developed to achieve high stretchability and wearability. Moreover, the collected data from individuals in a crowd may be further analyzed to detect potential crises and prevent tragedies. Finally, the performance of the developed system was verified in real-life experiments in Makkah city.
