Energy-based pedestrian navigation

Car navigation systems usually offer different choices to route calculation, for example the fastest, the shortest, and nowadays also the one with minimum energy consumption. For pedestrians the choice typically is shortest route, but it is not clear if the shortest path is the best one. A pedestrian has a tendency to energy minimization, for example when choosing the walking speed. This paper presents a novel energy based routing algorithm for pedestrians. The energy model is derived from energy expenditure measurements found from literature. Route planning is based on a road database utilizing an accurate digital elevation model.
