The number of severe incidents involving large pedestrian crowds has increased in recent decades; causes include overcrowded public transport stations in industrialized countries experiencing reurbanization and increased transit use and a greater frequency of large gatherings, whether organized (e.g., sports events) or not (e.g., Facebook parties, political rallies). Tragedies, like the one in Saudi Arabia in 2015, create societal upset and show the need for improved management of large gatherings.
