To direct pedestrians to a certain location, you should use the PedGoTo block of the Pedestrian Library and set the pedestrian target location (it is done typically with the help of the Target line markup tool).
Sometimes you might need to specify how
exactly pedestrians are following the defined path. Let us
say, we are modeling a passage at the subway transfer station. The two
pedestrian flows moving in the opposite
directions usually share the corridor space. Pedestrians of
each flow try to keep to the left
side of the corridor while moving, avoiding in such a
way flows intersection.
Each flow is moving along its path. However, the borders of the path can be crossed (e.g. we should consider the pedestrians moving faster than the flow. They cross the supposed border to outrun the slow-moving pedestrians of this flow)
Now, it is obvious that we face a task of separating the
counterflows within the same space. This separation must not be
achieved by means of walls. We must be able to
specify the movement direction, the desirable corridor that the
pedestrians must move along, but at the same time we must allow certain
pedestrians to cross the borders of this corridor.
