Séminaire Piétons et Foules - Seminar Pedestrians and Crowds

Le séminaire du groupe de travail "Piétons et Foules" a pour but de réunir des chercheurs de diverses disciplines qui s'intéressent aux foules et aux piétons.
Ce séminaire abordera des thématiques variées: détection automatique de piétons et tracking, modélisation, simulation, expériences, etc.

The seminar of the Working Group "Pedestrians and Crowds" aims at gathering researchers from various domains interested in crowds and pedestrians.
The range of topics that will be discussed will be very large: Automatic detection and tracking, modeling, simulation, experiments, etc.

Mardi 18 Juillet 2017: Alexandre NICOLAS (LPTMS - Orsay)

      Titre - Title:   Microscopic dynamics of pedestrian flows through a narrow exit: Experimental findings about the influence of behaviours and modelling
      Résumé - Abstract:   Recent experimental works about pedestrian flows through an exit have clarified details of the evacuation process and the influence of the behaviours [Pastor et al., PRE, 2017; Nicolas et al., TRB, 2017] . Statistical laws have been brought to light for competitive evacuations, which are strongly reminiscent of granular flows through an orifice, with in particular heavy-tailed (power-law) distributions p(Δ t) of intervals Δ t between successive escapes. Although a variety of cellular-automaton models for pedestrian dynamics are available, as far as I know, none of them was proven to reproduce these empirical microscopic statistics of escape times.
I will discuss the difficulty of obtaining a power-law distribution p(Δ t) with a lattice-based model and the ingredients that need to be incorporated to do so, the first of which is some kind of disorder. I will then introduce a minimal cellular-automaton which reproduces the experimental microscopic statistics in a semi-quantitative way, by accounting for heterogeneity in the pedestrians' behaviours [Nicolas et al., PRE, 2016].

Lundi 12 Juin 2017: Andrea Cavallaro (Centre for Intelligent Sensing - Queen Mary University of London, UK)

      Titre - Title:   Multiple target tracking for wearable and robotic cameras
      Résumé - Abstract:   Vision offers a powerful sensing modality to understand and interact with the physical world. The rapid progress in hardware, models and algorithms is supporting the emergence of applications for the recognition of events from wearable smart cameras and camera-equipped robots, such as unmanned land and aerial vehicles (i.e. self-driving cars and mini-drones). In this context I will present an online multi-target tracker that exploits both high- and low-confidence target detections in a Probability Hypothesis Density Particle Filter framework to continuously localise people from moving cameras. High-confidence detections are used for label propagation and target initialization, whereas low-confidence detections only support the propagation of labels. Data association is performed after prediction to avoid computationally expensive labelling procedures such as clustering. I will discuss results on the Multiple Object Tracking benchmark dataset and present several application scenarios.
