Evolving technologies are changing the way buildings are managed and have become a crucial part of running a successful and efficient venue, for instance for sports events. Large venues, usually with high seating capacities and a variety of equipment, may face critical issues such as overcrowding, equipment failure, or other incidents. To address these challenges, many stadiums or venues are seeking new, smart solutions that can support venue operators to stay on top of real-time situations dynamically on digital-driven platforms, and to achieve more efficient and sustainable venue management.
Hikvision has worked with several venues in Hangzhou, China that will be hosting the Asian Games in 2023. This involved building "Digital Twins" of the three main venues that accurately and virtually represent the physical space, allowing venue operators to simulate changes or scenarios in real time, and empower them with the dynamic insight to act quickly to make the whole site, and the Games, run smoothly.
Smart venues for smart games
The Hangzhou Olympic Sports Centre Gymnasium, Aquatic Sports Arena and Training Hall are not only stylish, but also equipped with innovative technologies. These three new venues, driven by a digital operations platform, are the main venues for the Asian Games.
