From 15 to 19 Februari 2021, we organised together with 5 European Business & Technical Higher Education Institutions and the important support of ISA in automation, ICT, CYbersecurity a hackathon about Crowd Control in Cities (CCC). Goal was to build and market a crowd control system based upon City WIFI & Bluetooth to allow to follow, direct and control crowds in cities. We introduced the Kalman Filtering concept counting and positioning people with smart phones, City WIFI, City Bluetooth or passive Badges. This concept was based on a graduate thesis work and we wanted to scale it up to crowds of hunderds or thousands of participants.

The students were using their laptop computers, smartphones, Microsoft Teams, sensors, multiple wifi antennes & routers, sensors, Arduinos, Raspberry PI. Law-, security-, marketing-, technical & business students were mixed in small groups. We used scrum & agile prototyping for automation, Communication, System Building, and programming. The non-technical students were the "users & customers" of this Crowd Control in Cities systems.

The intensive co-operation in and between these mixed groups made it possible that all groups succeeded in building, testing, marketing, selling and supporting the CROWD control solutions. They were very comunicative and every student could learn, appreciate the co-operation during the 5 scrum runs.

Although students, lecturers, ISA-members were geographically dispersed over Europe & the world, and using Whatsapp & Microsoft TEAMS in the communication they were enthousiastic, co-operative , fully supporting their international teams & friends.

For most students this was a first step in applied research and they reported also to other students and lecturers in an open and professional way.

Of course an in person hackathon would have been even more interactive, but all the participants were making plans to come together in summer when everyone is vaccinated and safe at the end of the last 2 years of COVID.

They got a nice mix of education, professional business experience & technology and international friendship, so the HELIX is complete.
