Many factors influence the movement of pedestrians: How do they cross an intersection? Do they form a queue when getting on a bus? Is the stairway to the subway wide enough for the number of passengers? When the infrastructure is set for these movements, there is safe mobility for everyone.
Pedestrian simulation software helps decide which appropriate measures to take. It also shows the advantages and disadvantages of different planning variants. The analysis of pedestrian flows is particularly important in complex scenarios. For example, in the planning of train stations, the preparation of mass events, or simply when making streets more pedestrian-friendly.
When planning fire safety measures or evacuation routes, pedestrian simulation can even save lives.
