O2 Motion gets the royal treatment
How our data enabled crowd insight at the King’s Coronation.
Making crowds safer
O2 Motion provides real-time location insights based on phone users’ movements, providing anonymised and aggregated data to accurately reflect the movement of people anywhere in the country.
After a successful implementation during the Queen’s funeral in 2022, DfT used O2 Motion to track crowd sizes and movements for the King’s Coronation in near real-time, using the data to brief operations teams and allocate resources effectively.
How did O2 help The Department for Transport?
