Calibrating pedestrian control strategies.
Responsable(s) :
Nicholas Molyneaux, Michel Bierlaire
Description :
The objective of this semester project is to calibrate two pedestrian control strategies using heuristic methods and/or optimization methods like simulated annealing or genetic algorithms. Two strategies are under investigation: gating to prevent a gridlock situation and flow separators which prevent counter flow. The student will have to use the pedestrian simulator I have implemented and integrate it with an optimization approach like simulated annealing.

Pré-requis :
Programming knowledge in java/scala is strongly recommended, other programming languages could be used but this would add extra complexity. Knowledge of optimization techniques is also strongly recommended.
