High-Statistics Modeling of Complex Pedestrian Avoidance Scenarios

A pedestrian dynamics modeling approach previously proposed by some of the authors and based on Langevin equations is considered and shown to be in quantitative agreement with real-life high-statistics measurements and extended to reproduce quantitatively selected observed features.

Frame vs. Trajectory Analyses of Pedestrian Dynamics Asymmetries in a Staircase Landing

This paper extends its previous investigation on the asymmetric pedestrian dynamics on a staircase landing, where it collected a large statistical database of measurements from ad hoc continuous recordings, and suggests two querying approaches to automatically extract occurrences of similar flow scenarios out of datasets.

Asymmetric pedestrian dynamics on a staircase landing from continuous measurements

We investigate via extensive experimental data the dynamics of pedestrians walking in a corridor-shaped landing in a building at Eindhoven University of Technology. With year-long automatic

Asymmetric pedestrian dynamics on a staircase landing from continuous measurements

This work investigates via extensive experimental data the dynamics of pedestrians walking in a corridor-shaped landing in a building at Eindhoven University of Technology using a Microsoft KinectTM 3D-range sensor and ad hoc tracking techniques.

Fluctuations around mean walking behaviors in diluted pedestrian flows.

A model for the dynamics of undisturbed pedestrians, based on stochastic differential equations, is proposed that provides a good agreement with field observations, including the occurrence of rare events.

Benchmarking high-fidelity pedestrian tracking systems for research, real-time monitoring and crowd control

PARAMETER ESTIMATION OF SOCIAL FORCES IN PEDESTRIAN DYNAMICS MODELS VIA A PROBABILISTIC METHOD

A Bayesian probabilistic method to estimate the value and the uncertainty of parameters in crowd dynamic models from the experimental data is presented and a fitness measure is introduced for the models to classify a couple of model structures according to their fitness to the experimentalData.

Analysis and Modelling of Pedestrian Movement Dynamics at Large-scale Events

To what extent can we model the movements of pedestrians who walk across a large-scale event terrain? This dissertation answers this question by analysing the operational movement dynamics of

Influences of Extraction Techniques on the Quality of Measured Quantities of Pedestrian Characteristics

For the proper understanding and modelling of pedestrian dynamics, reliable empirical data are necessary. Trajectories of every person with a high temporal and spatial resolution allow a detailed

Physics-based modeling and data representation of pairwise interactions among pedestrians

A general approach based on a graph representation of pedestrian trajectories, which allows the model to effectively operate complexity reduction for efficient data classification and selection in the case of binary collision avoidance.

A review and critical analysis of the mathematical literature concerning the modeling of vehicular traffic and crowd phenomena and a critical analysis focused on research perspectives that consider the development of a unified modeling strategy are presented.

Pedestrian, Crowd and Evacuation Dynamics

Self-organization Spontaneous organization not induced by initial or boundary conditions, by regulations or constraints, and it often causes different kinds of spatio-temporal patterns of motion, which are caused by social interactions rather than by physical interactions or fields.

Experimental study of the behavioural mechanisms underlying self-organization in human crowds

The experimental results reveal features of the decision process when pedestrians choose the side on which they evade, and show a side preference that is amplified by mutual interactions.

Kinects and Human Kinetics: A New Approach for Studying Crowd Behavior

This work presents a novel data collection approach for studying crowd behavior which uses the increasingly popular low-cost sensor Microsoft Kinect, and calibrates three variations of the Social Force model to reproduce the observed crowd behavior in microscopic simulations.
