In this paper, two important factors which affect the pedestrian outflow at a bottleneck significantly are studied in detail to analyze the effect of an obstacle setup in front of an exit. One is a conflict at an exit when pedestrians evacuate from a room. We use floor field model for simulating such behavior, which is a well-studied pedestrian model using(More)
Received Abstract We have introduced excluded volume effect, which is an important factor to model a realistic pedestrian queue, into queueing theory. The probability distributions of pedestrian number and pedestrian waiting time in a queue have been calculated exactly. Due to time needed to close up the queue, the mean number of pedestrians increases as(More)
Cellular Automaton (CA) is a new and suitable approach to model various kinds of SDP systems, such as vehicular traffic, pedestrian dynamics, and logistics. Especially, the advantages of CA modeling approach are follows; (1) CA models can explicitly consider the exclusion principle, which is an essential factor of SDP system. (2) Some of CA models, e.g.(More)
