A simple and fast queueing model of bi-directional pedestrian flow in long channels

We derive an utmost simple microscopic queueing model of bidirectional pedestrian flow through long channels. The model is to the extent possible consistent with the Kinematic Wave Model and requires the calibration of only four parameters. Its fundamental diagram is derived and compared to real data (joint work with Gregor Laemmel, FZ Juelich).


Gunnar completed his PhD at TU Berlin in 2008. He was a post-doc at TRANSP-OR from 2009 until 2011. Since 2011, he is on a junior faculty position in transport modeling at KTH.
