Pedestrian Dynamics® Crowd Simulation software for Educational Institutes available NOW!

Educational Institutes around the world show a growing interest to implement Pedestrian Dynamics® in their curriculum and research programs. Simulation adds value by ‘Predictive Analytics’.
The physical distance rules that are implemented as one of the COVID-19 measures give also rise to many research studies in which Pedestrian Dynamics can play a major role.

To fulfill this need INCONTROL Simulation Software developed a set of affordable Pedestrian Dynamics® licenses for the Educational Market in close cooperation with Universities, Institutes of Applied Sciences, and the industry.

The simulation software of INCONTROL allows Educational Institutes to educate students and to support their research projects by training crowd modelling and the simulation of systems in the areas of Transportation, Logistics, Event Logistics, Crowd Management, Fire Engineering, Architecture, Urban Planning and more.

Pedestrian Dynamics® is already implemented in curricula of leading institutions e.g. Delft University of Technology, Manchester Metropolitan University, and many others. As an example, at Delft University of Technology Transport & Planning department (see: Transport & Planning TU Delft), Pedestrian Dynamics® is taught during classroom and e-classroom sessions as part of a course named “Active Modes: Traffic and Transport”. During this course students obtain hands-on experience on how to analyze the performance of a large train station. It gives insight in the impact on the station and its surroundings due to the number of pedestrians during normal, low and peak demand. The Manchester Metropolitan University implemented Pedestrian Dynamics® in their study MSc Crowd Safety and Risk Analysis (see: Crowd Safety and Risk Analysis).

Educational Institutions can order a classroom license and individual teachers or researchers can purchase a single user license. For students, a free of charge Pedestrian Dynamics Student Starter license is available enabling students working at their institute, but also at home! Students can also make use of an affordable Pedestrian Dynamics® Student Pro license which contains the same functionalities as the complete commercial license.
