Research output: Patent


A visitor control and tracking system for a venue (4) having various access points (6, 7) and multiple destination points (Z1-Z4) includes a monitoring system (120) that tracks location and movement of visitors to the venue (4). Prior to entering the venue (4), visitors first interact with one of a plurality of screening centers (40) which performs a security scan. A controller (130) operatively connected to the plurality of screening centers (40) determines a visitor associated metric for each of the plurality of destination points (Z1-Z4). Once the controller (130) determines the visitor associated metric, information is provided to the visitors that will help guide them about the venue (4). The information can be provided on a display (79) provided on each of the plurality of screening centers (40) and/or on displays (150 a-j) provided about the venue (4).
