Experimental data on single file pedestrian movement has been analysed and
implemented in a prototype movement model. The prototype model is developed to
predict movement of persons based on a first principle approach using basic population
data such as age, height, gender and response time to adapt the walking speed in a crowd.
The experimental data provide the biomechanical information needed in the model. The
intention with the new approach is to present a predictive capability for the future as a
consequence of the identified demographical changes observed in today's society.
