Human Guiding, Turning Theory into Practice
We introduce an intelligent lighting system for dynamic pedestrian guiding. Its benefits in emergency situations are demonstrated through a simulated evacuation scenario. A pilot system for passenger flow optimization is presented as an example of a non-emergency application. The system is useful for implementing solutions for pedestrian guiding found through modeling and simulations.
