Although pedestrians have individual preferences, aims, and destinations, the dynamics of pedestrian crowds is surprisingly predictable. Pedestrians can move freely only at small pedestrian densities. Otherwise their motion is affected by repulsive interactions with other pedestrians, giving rise to self-organization phenomena. Examples of the resulting patterns of motion are separate lanes of uniform walking direction in crowds of oppositely moving pedestrians or oscillations of the passing… Expand
Self-organization in Pedestrian Crowds
TLDR
Interestingly enough, the non-linear interactions of pedestrians lead to various complex, spatio-temporal pattern-formation phenomena, which have important implications for the optimization of pedestrian facilities, in particular for evacuation situations. Expand
Walking Behavior of Pedestrian Groups in the Merchandise Streets
Pedestrians' motion is principally driven by self-organized processes, which based on local interactions among pedestrians. Up to 70% of people walk in groups, including friends, families. InExpand
Traffic Instabilities in Self-Organized Pedestrian Crowds
TLDR
This work found that the traffic segregation exhibits structural instabilities characterized by the alternation of organized and disorganized states, where the lifetime of well-organized clusters of pedestrians follow a stretched exponential relaxation process, and shows that the inter-pedestrian variability of comfortable walking speeds is a key variable at the origin of the observed traffic perturbations.

Self-Organization When Pedestrians Move in Opposite Directions. Multi-Lane Circular Track Model
TLDR
This work introduces and analyzes a simple model that supports the belief that global self-organization is possible even if each member of the group acts without considering the rest. Expand
The Walking Behaviour of Pedestrian Social Groups and Its Impact on Crowd Dynamics
TLDR
Analyzing the motion of approximately 1500 pedestrian groups under natural condition shows that social interactions among group members generate typical group walking patterns that influence crowd dynamics, demonstrating that crowd dynamics is not only determined by physical constraints induced by other pedestrians and the environment, but also significantly by communicative, social interaction among individuals.

Separation of pedestrian counter flows with an array of obstacles
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the flow rate of two groups of people walking in the opposite directions is improved by means of an array of geometrically asymmetric obstacles, as a result of flow separations. Expand
Effects of Crowding Perception on Self-organized Pedestrian Flows Using Adaptive Agent-based Model
TLDR
It is found that the heterogeneity of how pedestrians perceive crowding in the population has a remarkable impact on the flow quality, which results in the buildup of congestion and rapidly decreases the efficiency of pedestrian flows, indicating that the concept of heterogeneity may be used to explain the instability of phase transitions.

TLDR
This paper presents a critical and integrative review of research on pedestrian's dynamics and associated topics, with an emphasis on the advances made possible by the application of the constructal law. Expand
Modeling Groups of Pedestrians in Least Effort Crowd Movements Using Cellular Automata
TLDR
This paper presents a variation of least effort cellular automata algorithm which also considers the effect of pedestrian groups on crowd movement and has been used in small scale movement layer of the multi-agent crowd simulation platform in order to allow more realistic simulations of crowd flows. Expand
A new collision avoidance model for pedestrian dynamics
TLDR
An optimization-based model for the avoidance of collisions is proposed, where the social repulsive force is removed in favor of a search for the quickest path to destination in the pedestrian’s vision field, which means the pedestrians can actively avoid collisions. Expand
