Understanding and optimizing pedestrian flows
The trend to urbanization leads to increasingly complex crowd flows in a multitude of transport environments. To ensure that the design of public spaces and urban infrastructure meet human needs, planners and operators require efficient tools for analyzing and predicting crowd movement.
AIT Mobility addresses the challenges of Crowd Dynamics by studying human movement behavior and hence provides valuable input and methodologies to design urban spaces. Based on long-standing expertise and novel results from research, AIT offers innovative solutions for multi-scale analysis using crowd simulation, computer-aided crowd control systems and virtual reality technologies to evaluate wayfinding systems.
"Wayfinding" information is designed to help passengers find their way more easily at airports and railway stations.
AIT Experts for the "Dynamic Transportation Systems"- unit presented their most recent Technologies on multimodal mobility systems at the InnoTrans 2016 trade fair.
