Simulation of large-scale events, group behavior in crowds and even the use of virtual reality to study pedestrian behavior where among the topics presented in the workshop. Paula Godoy, a master student from TU Delft who is currently using Pedestrian Dynamics® for the thesis project had the chance of attending it and also giving a short presentation. The main topic of her presentation was the verification and validation studies of Pedestrian Dynamics® in accordance with the internationally recognized guidelines of International Maritime Organization (IMO) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
INCONTROL is in close cooperation with the academia, and continuously performing, sponsoring and making use of research into pedestrian movements to extend the set of validated attributes and values of Pedestrian Dynamics®, as well as to provide those in update version of the software. Research with Pedestrian Dynamics® can be performed in a variety of areas of expertise and purposes, from testing architecture designs to improving realism in simulation. If you are student or researcher who wants to add more visualization power to your work, or test your own algorithms in a user-friendly virtual environment, contact INCONTROL as we are open for discussing opportunities for collaboration.
