The recent spread of communicable diseases like swine flu, disasters like stampedes and ongoing security issues have made management of large crowded events more critical than ever before. Managing large crowds is a very complex, challenging and costly exercise. Many of the problems encountered in crowd management can be minimized by the use of RFID and other wireless technologies. These technologies are already being used in managing and administering many activities of daily life. However, the effectiveness of these technologies is yet to be tested for managing dense crowds and poses a challenge to the industry. The aim of this paper is to provide a management framework for large & dense crowds. The analysis of the technological framework is done with help of Hajj & Kumbh case studies. The research is industrial in nature and we hope that it would help the organizers of crowded events and law and order enforcement agencies.
