When designing public environments, it is important to assess their capacity and throughput, find pedestrian bottlenecks, and carry out evacuation planning. The AnyLogic Pedestrian Library is a pedestrian simulation and crowd analysis tool that allows users to accurately model, visualize, and analyze how crowd flows behave in a physical environment, and eliminate its possible inefficiencies.
A pedestrian in an AnyLogic model moves according to simulated physical rules. It interacts with the surroundings objects, including walls and escalators, and avoids possible collisions. Users can preassign pedestrians with individual properties, preferences, and states. The library’s toolkit includes flow density map, pedestrian counters, and elements for calculating wait and service times.
