Pedestrian model 1.0.0
The model generates disaggregated traffic flows of pedestrians, simulating their daily mobility behaviour represented as probabilistic rules. Various parameters of physical infrastructure and travel behaviour can be altered and tested. This allows predicting potential shifts in traffic dynamics in a simulated setting. Moreover, assumptions in decision-making processes are general for mid-sized cities and can be applied to similar areas.
Together with the model files, there is the ODD protocol with the detailed description of model’s structure. Check the associated publication for results and evaluation of the model.
Download GAMA-platform (GAMA1.8.2 with JDK version) from https://gama-platform.github.io/. The platform requires a minimum of 4 GB of RAM.
Follow the installation steps provided here: https://gama-platform.org/wiki/Installation
In preferences set up maximum memory allocated to the GAMA to at least 4 GB. Open GAMA menu in Help -> Preferences -> Interface. Make sure the platform uses the same coordinate reference system as input shapefiles (EPSG:32633) in Help -> Preferences -> Data and Operators.
The download zip has the “code” folder with GAMA project files. Import these files into GAMA by right-clicking on “User-models” in “Models” tab of the GAMA interface. Select “GAMA project”. In the new window browse to the “code” folder as a root directory. Make sure to check the boxes “Search for nested projects” and “Copy project into workspace”. Click Finish.
The input data of the project is in the folder “includes” and the model code file is in the folder “models” under “pedestrian_model.gaml” name. Due to licensing restrictions homes and workplaces datasets do not include actual values.
