Perimeter Security

EXPO 2015

Milan, Italy

In a technology partnership with Expo Milano 2015, CAME developed an innovative access control system that succeeded in managing the enormous pedestrian and vehicular flows through the parking areas and the exhibition halls themselves generated by the more than 21 million visitors to the international fair.

Expo Milano 2015 had been looking for a system that could reconcile the need for the high security that the event demanded with the need to maintain speed and fluidity in the management of  the entrance and exit of a huge crowd numbering 250,000 people a day. The system also had to be amenable to the centralized management and oversight of all operations across the more than 1.100.000 square meters of the exhibition site by the authorities in charge of security, which was done through an operations center.

CAME designed and developed an entire system that was custom built to satisfy all the demands of the client. It included features such as smart turnstiles to direct the flow of visitors and automatic barriers protecting the checkpoints for the control of vehicular traffic. The turnstiles, which were nominated for the prestigious Compasso d’Oro Award (for innovation), were specifically designed to enhance communication with visitors and reduce waiting times to a minimum. Particular attention was dedicated to the building of twenty special turnstiles for disabled access. The access control system comprised automated sliding gates, road barriers and bollards with removable covers to allow them to be customized to changing needs.

The perimeter entrances to the exhibition site consisted of: 230 XVIA turnstiles capable of scanning paper tickets and QR codes and of reading the signals from RFID and NFC devices; 22 AXO automatic sliding gates; 23 automatic GARD8 EZ road booms; and 40 G6 EVO bollards. The integrated access control system could be operated from 70 handheld devices.
