The Pedestrian as the Center of Planning: No Evaluation Without Data


Nowadays, only few solutions of microscopic traffic simulation exist that allow one to a priori evaluate urban planning for which the diversity among road users (pedestrian, driver) is predominant. In particular, underlying pedestrian microscopic models lack realism to simulate these situations, which differ from the situations they have been created for. A goal of the project "Simulation of Crossroads crossing by Pedestrians" (SiCaP), a project granted by the French Road Safety Foundation, is to partially solve the problems raised above. The aim of this project stands on modeling the notion of anticipation of drivers' behaviors by pedestrians, and then to suggest an algorithm for the crossroads crossing by pedestrians.
