Progress of Simulation Studies of Pedestrian Traffic

The study of pedestrian simulation is one of the remarkable topics in the current traffic and simulation field. The meanings and contents of the study were stated in the beginning. A brief history of the study was discussed. In the next, the mechanism and applicable conditions of five typical microscopic pedestrian simulation models, including benefit cost cellular model, cellular automata model, magnetic force model, social force model and queuing network model, were analyzed besides a comparison. Furthermore, five pieces of typical pedestrian simulation software were proposed. Finally, the problems and the future tendencies of pedestrian simulation were discussed.
