We present a 2-dimensional cellular automaton model for the simulation of pedestrian dynamics. Inspired by the principles of chemotaxis the interactions between the pedestrians are mediated by a so-called floor field. This field has a similar effect as the chemical trace created e.g. by ants to guide other individuals to food places. In our case the floor field modifies the transition rates to neighbouring cells. It has its own dynamics (diffusion and decay) and can be changed by the motion of… 
A Cellular Automaton Model for Crowd Movement and Egress Simulation
TLDR
The major aim of this dissertation is to define and validate a model for the simulation of evacuation processes and their analysis, using the analogy between non-equilibrium many particle systems and crowds.
Cellular Automaton Simulations of Pedestrian Dynamics and Evacuation Processes
TLDR
The model is able to reproduce collective effects and self-organization phenomena encountered in pedestrian traffic, e.g. lane formation in counterflow and the problem of optimization of evacuation times is applied.
Individual-Based Model to Simulate Crowd Dynamics Using Artificial Potential Fields
TLDR
An individual-based model to simulate the behaviour of human crowd is developed using the artificial potential fields and numerical results that match the observations ofhuman crowd behaviour prove the efficiency and applicability of the model.
Crowd Behavior Simulation Using Artificial Potential Fields
TLDR
A new model that depends on using the artificial potential fields (APF) to simulate the crowd behavior is presented and results that match the real behavior of human individuals show the efficiency and applicability of the model as well as its fastness that allow it to handle dynamic environments with massive crowds.
Mutual-Interaction Potential Fields Model to Simulate Crowd Behavior during Evacuation Processes
TLDR
A model to simulate the behaviour of human crowd using the artificial potential fields to describe the interaction forces between each crowd member and the environment on one side and amongst the crowd members on the other side by adopting the mutual interactions rules that appear in many biological systems such as bird flocks and fish schools is presented.
Pedestrian Traffic - Simulation and Experiments
TLDR
This thesis deals with the simulation of pedestrian traffic with a focus on evacuation processes and the construction of a discrete model of pedestrian evacuation dynamics, which is applicable to scenarios with a few million persons.
Evacuation System in a Building Using Cellular Automata for Pedestrian Dynamics
TLDR
The result of comparison method shows that the proposed method could work better in certain conditions, and the results of the experiments during panic and normal situation show similar characteristics especially regarding density aspect, yet evacuation time during panic situation takes longer time.
From chaotic road traffic to cooperative opportunistic percolation using cellular automata
TLDR
This paper describes some first steps to modelling the ‘less-structured’ road traffic environment using cellular automata and looks at some of the constraints of applying a CA to bi-directional, mixed-user road traffic systems exhibiting the characteristics of cooperative opportunistic percolation.
Pedestrian Traffic: on the Quickest Path
TLDR
This work has shown how to minimize unrealistic artifacts in a model of pedestrian dynamics by using a flood fill dynamic potential field method, where during the filling process the value of a field cell is not increased by 1, but by a larger value, if it is occupied by an agent.

TLDR
It is shown that the model is able to reproduce collective effects and self-organization phenomena encountered in pedestrian traffic, e.g. lane formation in counterflow through a large corridor and oscillations at doors.
Modelling the evolution of human trail systems
TLDR
A model of pedestrian motion is developed that takes into account pedestrian motion and orientation and the concomitant feedbacks with the surrounding environment and is able to reproduce many of the observed large-scale spatial features of trail systems.
Pedestrian and evacuation dynamics
Is the behaviour of a crowd in an emergency situation predictable? Are the different patterns occurring in pedestrian flow based on common rules? How does panic change human reactions? These and
Simulating dynamical features of escape panic
TLDR
A model of pedestrian behaviour is used to investigate the mechanisms of panic and jamming by uncoordinated motion in crowds, and an optimal strategy for escape from a smoke-filled room is found, involving a mixture of individualistic behaviour and collective ‘herding’ instinct.
From snowflake formation to growth of bacterial colonies II: Cooperative formation of complex colonial patterns
TLDR
This work presents a wealth of beautiful patterns formed during colonial development of various bacterial strains and for different environmental conditions by invoking ideas from pattern formation in non-living systems and using generic modelling.
