Pedestrian Modeling Overview

In the past, there has been a large amount of work done to model pedestrians for various systems. For the many applications, such as urban planning, construction of high pedestrian density buildings such as rail stations, there are naturally many forms that pedestrian modelling can take. This article lists and describes many different types of pedestrian modeling including the cellular automata and agent-based approaches that we are taking in this project. Though slightly dated, it provides a good foundation for understanding the work that has already been completed in this field.
