This work presents an approach for generating video evidence of dangerous situations in crowded scenes. The scenarios of interest are those with high safety risk such as blocked exit, collapse of a person in the crowd, and escape panic. Real visual evidence for these scenarios is rare or unsafe to reproduce in a controllable way. Thus there is a need for simulation to allow training and validation of computer vision systems applied to crowd monitoring. The results shown here demonstrate how to simulate the most important aspects of crowds for performance analysis of computer based video surveillance systems.
