Abstract

This study aims to develop a microscopic pedestrian behavior model considering various interactions on pedestrian dynamics at crosswalks. Particularly, we take into account the evasion behavior with counter-flow pedestrians, the following behavior with leader pedestrians, and the collision avoidance behavior with vehicles. Aerial video data at one intersection in Beijing, China are extracted for model calibration. A microscopic calibration approach based on maximum likelihood estimation is applied to estimate the parameters of a modified social force model. Finally, we validate step-wise speed, step-wise acceleration, step-wise direction change, crossing time and lane formation phenomenon by comparing the real data and simulation outputs.
