Introduction to SMART Move

SMART Move is a highly intuitive tool to simulate, analyse, and visualize crowd flow in buildings and urban spaces. As a plug-in to Rhino3D, SMART Move provides realtime interaction with 2D/3D models without having to leave the modelling environment. Click on the video below to see it in action.



Designed and developed by Buro Happold's SMART Solutions team, SMART Move Lite is based on our flagship crowd simulation software (SMART Move Pro) that has been developed over a number of years, benefiting from our vast experience in simulation of crowd flow at venues covering urban, education, sports, rail and airports.


SMART Move is currently available as a plug-in to Rhino 3D.


The features of SMART Move are:

  • Real time crowd modelling
  • Intuitive drag-and-draw interface to compare different design options
  • Quick visualisation of moving people without leaving the CAD program
  • Identification of possible pinch points
  • Quick set up of different scenarios with ease
  • Playback, rerun, and save animations as videos


The software has been released in a beta state, and we welcome you to try, evaluate, and feedback to us. You can post a message directly to the group or email us directly at
