Pedestrian Library blocks

Blocks contained in the Pedestrian Library are the building blocks you will use to construct your flowcharts. As usual, you have blocks that generate pedestrians, control pedestrian flow, process pedestrians.

PedSource

Generates pedestrians. Is usually used as a starting point of the pedestrian flow.

PedSink

Disposes pedestrians. Is usually used as an end point of the pedestrian flow.

PedGoTo

Causes pedestrians to go to the specified target.

PedService

Simulates how pedestrians behave in services.

PedWait

Causes pedestrians to wait for a specified time in a specified location.

PedSelectOutput

Routes the incoming pedestrians to one of the five output ports depending on specified ratios or conditions.

PedEnter

Places pedestrians into the simulated environment.

PedExit

Removes pedestrians from the simulated environment.

PedEscalator

Simulates how pedestrians are transported by an escalator.

PedAreasDescriptor

DEPRECATED since v.8.7: Defines rules and/or restrictions on pedestrian speed for pedestrian area. Allows to modify pedestrians speed and define maximum speed. Also allows making the area a "moving level" and controlling its speed and direction (use this feature to simulate escalators and moving lines).

PedChangeLevel

Moves pedestrians to a different level.

PedGroupAssemble

Organizes groups from a sequence of pedestrians at input port.

Also reassembles groups which have been split by blocks that don't support groups (like PedService): pedestrians wait in the given area and leave it in their original group when the whole group arrives.

PedGroupChangeFormation

Causes group to change its form to a specified one when group leader passes this block.

PedGroupDisassemble

When group leader enters this block, group dissolves, so pedestrians become independent from each other and follow their personal paths.

PedSettings

Contains general parameters that can be specified for all blocks of the Pedestrian Library.
