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)
—Models for the simulation of pedestrian dynamics and crowds of pedestrians have already been successfully applied to several scenarios and case studies, off-the-shelf simulators can be found on the market and they are commonly employed by end-user and consultancy companies. However, these models are the result of a first generation of research efforts(More)
This paper introduces the first experiments of an innovative approach to the modeling and simulation of crowds of pedestrians considering the presence of groups as a crucial element influencing overall system dynamics. In-silico experimental results are discussed in relation to in-vitro experiments (experimental observations on the movement of pedestrians(More)
The simulation of pedestrian dynamics is a consolidated area of application for agent-based models: successful case studies can be found in the literature and off-the-shelf simula-tors are commonly employed by decision makers and consultancy companies. These models, however, generally do not consider the explicit representation of pedestrians ag-gregations(More)
