Pedestrian traffic meets a lot of issue as daily operations optimization or management in crowded areas such as airports or train stations, or as linked to the safety and evacuation plans issues.
We develop a platform coded in Python to model pedestrian flows.
The built model is macroscopic dynamic, so we consider the traffic as a continuous flow, and pedestrians’ general behavior is treated by analogy to transport models in fluid dynamics. The equilibrium relation links pedestrians’ speed with their density.
Pedestrians are divided into different layers according to their original direction, that is to say, according to their entrance and exit doors. Thus, we separately compute the pedestrian density of each layer before the global density.
