PEDSIM is a microscopic pedestrian crowd simulation system. The PEDSIM library allows you to use pedestrian dynamics in your own software. Based on pure C++ without additional packages, it runs virtually on every operating system. The PEDSIM Demo Application gives you a quick overview of the capabilities, and is a starting point for your own experiments.

PEDSIM is suitable for use in crowd simulations (e.g. indoor evacuation simulation, large scale outdoor simulations), where one is interested in output like pedestrian density or evacuation time. Also, the quality of the individual agent's trajectory is high enough for creating massive pedestrian crowds in movies. Since libpedsim is easy to use and extend, it is a good starting point for science projects.

This is an example scene from a pedestrian simulation generated 2004 by using PEDSIM. The output was sent to povray to produce single pictures as well as a movie. Note that this is a early version of pedsim. Also the focus is on the simulation dynamics and not on the output quality.

The Demo Application is intended a) to show what PedSim is able to do, and b) to give a example implementation that uses libpedsim in a more complex way than the small examples do.
