Computer Vision Use Cases in Venues

People Counting

People Counting


Getting thousands of people into a stadium, for a specific time, with only a few entry/exit gates is problematic and can sour the fan experience even before the start of the big event.


Count patrons in real-time to know exactly how many fans are gathered at gates or other areas. Get immediate alerts when crowds reach a certain threshold to manage traffic in and out of venues.

Dwell Time


Sports fans attend games to watch the live action, not stand in line at team stores, at concession stands or by bathrooms. In fact, 45% of sports fans will abandon concession lines without making purchases if they are too long.


Monitor wait times at concessions and team stores in real time. Immediate alerts allow managers to reallocate staff, open new checkout lines, notify fans of less crowded concessions, and reduce wait times.

Sponsorship Traffic


Sponsorship displays are increasingly important for venues. Unfortunately, having little to no data about how displays perform is frustrating and can jeopardize future opportunities.


Computer vision tracks how many people stopped to view or interact with sponsor displays and how long they lingered. ​Score more lucrative deals with these unprecedented insights.

Safety Alerts


70% of fans consider safety and security precautions when choosing to attend a sporting event. However, monitoring fan behavior, slip and fall accidents, and other safety issues is difficult.


alwaysAI Smart Venues is like having extra sets of eyes strategically positioned around your venue. Detect spills or disputes among fans – as they happen – so you can send staff and security immediately and minimize risk.
