Pedestrian Modelling in NetLogo
The objective of our research is to explore crowd dynamics under different circumstances, especially its optional applications in sustainable tourism. The terminology (crowd phenomena, pedestrian behaviour, local interaction, motion patterns) is explained and a brief overview of three theoretical models (cellular automata model, social force model and network model) is provided. Then our visitor flow model is suggested and the case study, the model of the crowd dynamics of visitors in the ZOO, is specified. NetLogo was used for implementation.
