Bridging the gap Why we need to enhance current simulation models
Keywords:pedestrian simulation model enhancements, agent-based behaviour, persona approach, simulation of everyday situation
AbstractMany models that simulate evacuations are state of the art and provide realistic insight to their users. However, simulating everyday situations, such as visitor flow through a museum or passenger flow through an airport, presents marked challenges; existing models reach their limit here. This contribution will introduce and highlight the gap between existing egress models and the difficulties found simulating, for instance, passenger flow or capacity analysis.
