Assessment grid for pedestrian models in a railway station context

Grille d'évaluation des simulations piétons dans le cas des gares ferroviaires


This assessment grid is dedicated to evaluating pedestrian models in the context of railway stations, including massive passenger flows and train arrivals and departures’ influence on the pedestrian demand. The evaluation is done for both scientific and industrial goals, and thus includes criteria about the possible use of such models in operations. For example, is the model capable of running simulations fast enough to help a global station management system take decisions in real time. Global methodology is explained in the main article, “On pedestrian traffic management in railway stations: simulation needs and model assessment”, submitted for review for 21st EURO Working Group on Transportation Meeting (EWGT 2018) on April 20th, 2018. The evaluation addresses four aspects of pedestrian models: (1) access conditions (2) application conditions (3) crowd dynamics issues and (4) modeling and simulation. These questions are derived from a literature review (Duives, Daamen, &Hoogendoorn, 2013; Nelson, 1995; Caramuta et al., 2017), empirical knowledge of pedestrian behavior, and previous research (Kabalan, Leurent, Christoforou, & Dubroca-Voisin, 2017). This evaluation grid has been designed to provide a quick overview of a model's capabilities. We consider that giving a global score is irrelevant since the motives of the users can vary widely
