Discontrol Party

Discontrol Party is a festive interactive device initiated by Samuel Bianchini.

Discontrol Party is a research program on the theme of « Large Group Interaction». This project led by the laboratory DRII by ENSADLAB questions the efficiency of surveillance devices in front of a chaotic crowd.

As part of the project, Orbe implemented a real-time tracking device for the 200 participants of the event. It includes a real-time data analysis and the feedback taking of visualization systems. Orb uses Ubisense UWB technology: an indoor geolocation solution by emitting electromagnetic pulses. The device was tested for the first time at the Gaité Lyrique in the context of the festival Futur en Seine 2011.
