Pedestrian Simulator

|

ROS packages for a 2D pedestrian simulator based on social force model of Helbing et. al. The implementation is based on an extended version of Christian Gloor's libpedsim library which has been extended to include additional behaviors and activities. This packages is useful for robot navigation experiments with crowded scenes which are hard to acquire in practice.

Features

  • Individual walking using social force model for very large crowds in real time
  • Group walking using the extended social force model
  • Social activities simulation
  • Sensors simulation (point clouds in robot frame for people and walls)
  • XML based scene design
  • Extensive visualization using Rviz
  • Option to connect with gazebo for physics reasoning

Requirements

  • ROS with the visualization stack (currently tested on
    hydro
    ,
    indigo
    ,
    kinetic
    ). For melodic, see the branch
    melodic-dev
  • C++11 compiler

Installation

The default version is now

melodic
. For kinetic please check out the branch
kinetic
which still depends on Qt4.

git clone https://github.com/srl-freiburg/pedsim_ros.git  
cd pedsim_ros
git submodule update --init --recursive
cd ../..
catkin build -c  # or catkin_make

Sample usage
