Pedestrian Simulation

Pedestrian simulation in AnyLogic enables the effective development of solutions for planning, managing, and optimizing pedestrian flows in public buildings like airports, railway stations, shopping malls, and stadiums.

Building capacity: Creating layouts that avoid bottlenecks and accommodate the passage of people through ticket halls, security checks, and other points of congestion is a challenge with which pedestrian flow analysis can help. There is also the need to stress-test doors, stairs, elevators, escalators, and corridors, to calculate their operating capacities. AnyLogic has a specific Pedestrian Library to help with crowd simulation and to deliver success when planning a building or validating your project.

Business processes: Introducing a service point can affect the dynamics of a building. Ticket barriers at railway stations, kiosks or ATMs in shopping malls, passport controls at airports, all are examples with the potential to cause significant disruption. With pedestrian simulation in AnyLogic, you can determine installation requirements and optimal performance, to efficiently meet demands. AnyLogic enables you to conduct in-depth pedestrian flow analysis at your facility and optimize business processes.

Evacuation planning: Knowing how an evacuation plan will work in a building is crucial. Evacuation simulation software allows modelers to test various evacuation plans that reflect the diverse and complex behaviors of people in an emergency. Evacuation simulation software can also evaluate safety and security weak spots, assisting prevention and mitigation strategy development.

Shopping area customer traffic: The value of a shopping or advertising location is essential business information. Knowing the expected footfall and how it may be modified can give a competitive edge. Using AnyLogic for crowd simulation and pedestrian modeling gives you these insights.

Public transport accessibility: Simulating transport availability is of significant value when organizing the visitor flows of a facility. Traffic sources, parking management, and the wider impact of change on surrounding roads and networks are all factors affecting congestion. AnyLogic delivers professional pedestrian simulation for crowd modeling and the planning of transport accessibility, giving you the power to find the right solutions.

Using pedestrian simulation software is key to detailed pedestrian flow and crowd dynamics analysis.
