Title:
Bidirectional Coupling of Macroscopic and Microscopic Approaches for Pedestrian Behavior Prediction 
Abstract:
We combine a macroscopic and a microscopic model of pedestrian dynamics with a bidirectional coupling technique to obtain realistic predictions for evacuation times. While the macroscopic model is derived from dynamic network flow theory, the microscopic model is based on a cellular automaton. Output from each model is fed into the other, thus establishing a control cycle. As a result, the gap between the evacuation times computed by both models is narrowed down: the microscopic approach benefit...    »
