Passenger Flow Modeling and Simulation in Transit Stations

Passenger flow is a very important parameter for understanding how passengers interact with built infrastructure. The primary goal of this proposal is to model and simulate passenger flows in transit stations using computer vision and agent-based simulation technologies. The information generated during the performance of this project can potentially be used by NJ Transit to understand the benefit of infrastructure design or upgrade in terms of changing passenger flow and reducing congestion.
