The SCE department has designed several solutions to achieve an optimal level of operation of its catering services, among which a counting system allowing everyone on site to check the number of available seats in Restaurant 2 (a similar system has been running in Restaurant 3 since 15 December 2021).
This system has been fully effective since 7 November and will help cope with a potential increase of crowds in R2 during the refurbishment of Restaurant 1, which will resume next month.
The multifunctional camera detects the flow of visitors in real time and provides high counting and tracking accuracy. Data is collected for a real-time analysis delivered on a page that you can access here (only from the CERN site). The system processes data anonymously, in compliance with the CERN data privacy rules.
