In human crowds, interactions among individuals give rise to a variety of self-organized collective motions that help the group to effectively solve the problem of coordination. However, it is still not known exactly how humans adjust their behavior locally, nor what are the direct consequences on the emergent organization. One of the underlying mechanisms of adjusting individual motions is the stepping dynamics. In this paper, we present first quantitative analysis on the stepping behavior in…

Simulation of pedestrian single-lane movement by a biped model

In most existing pedestrian dynamic models, agents are modeled as sliding or jumping objects. As a kind of bipedal creature, however, this assumption makes it difficult to include some important human

Key Mechanisms behind Pedestrian Dynamics: Individual and Collective Patterns of Motion

This work examines the emergence of walking and running forms of human gait and the self-organization experienced by a group of individuals which is a key concept to understand crowd dynamics.

Properties of pedestrians walking in line: fundamental diagrams.

This paper focuses on the fundamental diagram, and on the relation between the instantaneous velocity and spatial headway (distance to the predecessor), and shows that the latter was found to be linear in previous experiments, but is rather a piecewise linear behavior which is found if larger density ranges are covered.

Step styles of pedestrians at different densities

To study pedestrians’ stepping locomotion, a set of single-file movement experiments involving 39 participants of the same age walking on a highly curved oval course is conducted and the microscopic characteristics of the pedestrians including 1D Voronoi density, speed, and step length are calculated based on a projected coordinate.

Experimental Study of the Following Dynamics of Pedestrians

We report some experimental study of the behavior of pedestrians when they follow each other. In the frame of the PEDIGREE project, trajectories of pedestrians walking along a one-dimensional path

Pedestrian ascent and descent fundamental diagram on stairway

It is shown that pedestrian speed can be described by counting the number of steps separating pedestrians in longitudinal direction, which can benefit pedestrian modelling and improve the evaluation of the evacuation performance of a staircase.

Experimental Study on the Influence of Step Phase in Pedestrian Movement

A single-file pedestrian movement experiment is carried out to analyse the microscopic moving characteristics of pedestrians and can give the stop-and-go phenomenon a new microscopic explanation.

Experimental study of single-file pedestrian movement with height constraints

The present research provides not only fundamental data of pedestrian movement with height constraints, but also a basis for understanding the complex features of pedestrianmovement in emergency situations.

Pedestrian Simulation Using Geometric Reasoning in Velocity Space

A novel pedestrian representation based on a new model of pedestrian motion coupled with a geometric optimization method that exhibits the same types of self-organizing behaviors shown by previous models is presented.

Diagonal patterns and chevron effect in intersecting traffic flows

We study a lattice model of two perpendicular intersecting flows of pedestrians represented by hard-core particles of two types, eastbound (“”) and northbound (“”). Each flow takes place on a strip

Collective Motion

It is demonstrated both numerically and analytically that even in certain one dimensional self-propelled particle systems an ordered phase exists for finite noise levels.

On-line locomotion synthesis for virtual humans

A generic motion modeling for locomotion and jump activities is introduced using a statistical method in order to facilitate the elaboration of an efficient parametric model, structured in hierarchical levels, allowing an intuitive motion synthesis with high-level parameters.
