Abstract

Measuring protests is an area of interest, as the amount of protesters is proportional to the success of the protest. Nevertheless, current methods of measurement are in counting heads in photos. In this paper using smart devices detection in a protest to measure the amount of people in the journey it is proposed. In order to do so, the Mobywit System is used, having been employed with success in the monitorization of vehicles and persons in Smart Cities scope. This system tracks the smart devices using their WiFi communications. Gathered data measures the number smart devices taking part in the protest, and so the number of participants.
