Chinese search engine Baidu has developed an algorithm that predicts whether crowds are likely to form at certain locations, and within two hours.

The new service can be used to prevent stampedes, and will uses data from Baidu's map app.

Baidu's map app accounts for over 70 percent of the Chinese mapping services market.

The idea on how to predict crowds in certain areas follows the Shanghai stampede on New Year's Eve in December 2014, where nearly 40 people were killed.

Baidu says, using the map data, people can find a way to determine crowd numbers in real time and trigger warnings at least 30 minutes ahead of time if unusually large crowds are expected to gather.
