We used LiDAR to detect and track people in an exhibition facility for better crowd management. The results were treated as time series data and visualized using a web application. In addition, we verified visitors’ stopping points to quantify interest in various exhibits, and found that by checking the time visitors spent in front of exhibits in 10-second intervals, the places in the exhibition hall that interested visitors could be visualized. The results suggest that the time classified as viewing is not necessarily longer, but that a threshold that takes into account the facilities and routes within the exhibition facility should be set.
