Waiting for hours to get results from your crowd flow models is history!

For all leading architects, engineers and consultants performing crowd risk analysis, our crowd simulation software is now more comprehensive than ever. INCONTROL is proud to announce the release of Pedestrian Dynamics 3.1 crowd simulation software!

In close collaboration with our professional - and academic users we significantly improved the crowd simulation software, Pedestrian Dynamics. To meet our customers' needs, we focus on increasing the user-friendliness of the software.

Pedestrian Dynamics® 3.1 enables you to:
  • Do a more detailed analysis with additional output statistics
  • Develop railway station models quicker
  • Edit and save agent profiles or use default profiles based on literature
  • Simulate agent flow on Meso or Macro level

 Agent activity_small

Demand profiles and routing based on origin destination matrices

With Next to the activity based routing, agents can now also be routed based on origin destination matrices. The Origin Destination Matrix (OD Matrix) is entered as a table in an agent activity. Beside street entries and exits, also specific bus lines or trains defined in the transportation input can be used as origin or destination. More functionality is introduced in the agent generator to easily create demand profiles based on the agent activities. This makes it easy to create demand based on an origin destination matrix.  

 Default agent profile_small

Default and editable agent profiles

Default sets of predefined profiles based on well-known academic research papers (e.g. Fruin, Daamen, IMO) can now be loaded and edited by the user. Using agent profiles you can define the walking behaviour of groups such as, tourist, persons of restricted mobility and commuters. It is now possible to save profiles created by the user and load them in another model or to share them with other users.

 spiral stairs_small

Spiral stairs

The user can now also model a wide range spiral stairs. The user can set the size, inner radius, start- and end-angle and the size of steps.

 Meso macro_small

Simulate in Meso or Macro mode

The option to model at meso level is improved. At meso level agents walk the shortest path to their destination and do not avoid other agents. To do a high level analysis new functionality to model at macro level is introduced. In macro mode agents have no interaction and move in straight lines from one activity location to another.


New output

New output statistics are added to do an even more detailed crowd flow analysis to evaluate not only the accessibility and safety of planned environments but also to analyze the usability and cost. You can create heat maps that can be either grid- or agent based.
 Cumulative mean density_small
Cumulative mean density
Show the average density (in colour) of an area in a certain time interval.
 space utilization map time above_small
Space utilization maps (time occupied)
Showing the use (in colour) of the area as time occupied.
 Cumulative high density time above_small
Cumulative high density (time above)
Show the time (in colour) that an area density has exceeded the threshold value.
Density of selected area_small

Content of selected area
Showing the amount of agent in a selected area over time.
social costs_small
Social costs
Shows the social cost of agents in a (by the user selected) currency and a breakdown of the result over different functional areas.
 Gen journey times _small
Generalized journey times
Shows the histogram of the generalized journey time of agents.
 Gen journey times groups_small
Generalized journey times (per group)
Shows the generalized journey time of agents and a breakdown of different funtional groups.
