Pedestrian modelling: current methods and future predictions

People are the foundation of the economic and social processes that drive the urban system. The need to understand the way in which people move through areas leads to the desire to predict pedestrian movements. By predicting pedestrian flows, the effect of changes to the spatial environment and transportation network can be determined. Pedestrian models are an important tool in assessing the efficiency and safety of pedestrian facilities and are an integral part in the planning and design of modem facilities. Pedestrian movement is complex and various methods have been implemented to attempt to represent this sometimes chaotic behaviour . The focus of this study is on providing a state-of-the- art review of current methods of modelling pedestrian movements and detailing emerging technologies in pedestrian modelling that hold great potential and are rapidly expanding.
