According to the timing of the numbering, one may reasonably judge the number of tourists waiting in front and arrange his own itinerary."
Use your mobile phone to find toilets and exits at Hongyadong
According to a person in charge of Hongyadong Scenic Spot, in response to the surge in tourists during the May Day holiday, the intelligent construction of Hongyadong Scenic Spot is to be achieved in three stages.
“During the Dragon Boat Festival, we carried out intelligent upgrades to the scenic spots, including installing security and gates at the entrances of the 11th, 1st and 2nd floors, adding 5 devices like high-definition cameras, face recognition, and passenger flow monitoring.” The person in charge said, with the help of collecting real-time passenger flow, regional thermal maps, scenic video, passenger flow analysis and other big data information, the scenic area can improve emergency, early warning, dispatching and management capabilities to deal with the peak pressure of passenger flow.
“Next, our intelligent construction is mainly centered on guiding passengers in the scenic spot.” Visitors can get to know the passenger flow in the scenic spot through the WeChat public account. If there were too many visitors in the scenic spot, people can choose to visit at some other time. In addition, the scenic area is still building an electronic navigation system, where tourists can find nearby toilets and fire escapes in the scenic spot. These intelligent constructions are expected to be realized before the National Day.
In the third stage, through face recognition, the scenic spot can capture the frequency of visitors to the scenic spots, the frequency of entering popular stores, analyze the tourist trajectory through big data, and timely know the tourists' feedback on hot spots in the scenic spot.
