—Cellular automata models have been extensively used for simulating pedestrian movements. One weakness of this type of models, is the size of the cells which is mostly considered to be of the size of a pedestrian (i.e. 40cm*40cm or near to it). Each pedestrian stands in a single cell and during simulation time steps, transits to neighbouring cells. The size(More)
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) computing is said to be the next wave of computing after client-server and web-based computing. It provides an opportunity to harness a lot of idle peer-resources such as desktop computers across the Internet, for solving large-scale computing applications. Each peer is autonomous and it needs incentive for sustained contribution of its(More)
Masjid Al-Haram in Saudi Arabia is one of the most crowded pilgrimage locations in the world. More than two million pilgrims gather in Saudi Arabia annually during the Hajj season , and it is compulsory for them to perform a series of actions in the mosque. In the court area, pilgrims perform one of the most important rituals of Hajj, called Tawaf, which(More)
Current computational devices are reaching the limit in terms of meeting the ever increasing needs of high performance computational power. However, there is plenty of idle computational power not being used efficiently since most of this power resides on individual machines, only waiting to be harnessed in an orderly manner. Peer-to-peer (P2P) technology(More)
– Crowd simulation is used for evacuation and crowd safety inspections, study of performance in crowd systems and animations. Cellular automata has been extensively used in modelling the crowd. In regular cellular automata models, each pedestrian occupies a single cell with the size of a pedestrian body. Since the space is divided into relatively large(More)
