Going with the Flow: Pedestrian Efficiency in Crowded Scenes

  title={Going with the Flow: Pedestrian Efficiency in Crowded Scenes},
  author={Louis Kratz and Ko Nishino},
Video analysis of crowded scenes is challenging due to the complex motion of individual people in the scene. The collective motion of pedestrians form a crowd flow, but individuals often largely deviate from it as they anticipate and react to each other. Deviations from the crowd decreases the pedestrian’s efficiency: a sociological concept that measures the difference of actual motion from the intended speed and direction.
