Simulation of pedestrian dynamics using a 2-dimensional cellular automaton

  title={Simulation of pedestrian dynamics using a 2-dimensional cellular automaton},
  author={Carsten Burstedde and K. Klauck and Andreas Schadschneider and J. Zittartz},
We propose a 2-dimensional cellular automaton model to simulate pedestrian traffic. It is a vmax = 1 model with exclusion statistics and parallel dynamics. Long-range interactions between the pedestrians are mediated by a so called floor field which modifies the transition rates to neighbouring cells. This field, which can be discrete or continuous, is subject to diffusion and decay. Furthermore it can be modified by the motion of the pedestrians. Therefore the model uses an idea similar to… CONTINUE READING
