Workshop on Collecting and Analysing Experimental Data of Pedestrian Dynamics
Directly after the foremost conference in the field of pedestrian dynamics, the Pedestrian and Evacuation Dynamics ’14 (PED 2014) in Delft, we want to invite all interested scientists to a workshop on collecting and analysing experimental data. We want to share our vast experience with everyone who is planning to execute experiments in this field or analyse data of these experiments especially to validate and calibrate mathematical models.
Topics we will address are
- technical aspects to capture data,
- automatic extraction of individual trajectories,
- quantitive evaluation of the trajectories,
- examples of findings,
- calibration and validation of models.
The workshop will last one day and will take place on 27 October 2014 at Forschungszentrum Jülich in Jülich, Germany.
