markup element is used to graphically define the following things in pedestrian dynamics models:
You can also use an area to define:
- A place where pedestrians appear in the simulated space (referred by
- The destination of the pedestrian movement (referred by
- The pedestrians waiting location (referred by
- "moving level" (use this feature to simulate escalators and moving lines).
- a place with a different pedestrians speed
- a place with restricted throughput: you can set the maximum number of pedestrians that can enter the area per time unit. This can be needed e.g. to model an escalator, or a revolving door.
In all these cases you first draw the area in the graphical area, then add the
Pedestrian Library block and configure it by enabling the corresponding parameters.
There are two area markup elements in Anylogic:
when your area has complex form. If your area is rectangular, use
You can make the area sloped, e.g. to model
stairs, see the following demo model:
