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)
—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)
—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 simulators are commonly employed by decision makers and consultancy companies. These models, however, generally do not consider the explicit representation of pedestrians aggregations(More)
