If you want to do further analysis using the result of the simulation, you need to specify
the type of report you want Micro-PedSim to produce as text files. To specify the type of
report you want to produce, click menu Output-Reporting or press Ctrl-R. Basically there
are 4 types of report that Micro-
PedSim can generate:
NTXY Database is the lowest
level and transferable to any
further analysis of the simulation.
NTXY database is simply record
of the pedestrian number (N),
time (T) and the coordinate
location (X, Y) of the
pedestrians in the trap at any
time slice.
It is also sometimes useful to view back the simulation if necessary using NTXY viewer
program. When the simulation running quite a long time and you are specifying to report
this text file, it may produce a very huge database. Please make sure that you have
enough hard disk space.
The System Performance is the time average of the Average Instantaneous performances,
as explain in the Simulation Performance section. It is recorded at the end of the
simulation (when the simulation stopped).
Average instantaneous performance is recorded at each time slice. It is the mean of
instantaneous performance at one particular time as explained in the Simulation
Performance section.
Instantaneous performance is the performance of each pedestrian at each time slice.
Notice similar warning to NTXY about the huge file.
11. Pedestrian
The facility (i.e. walkway) is modeled as a two-dimensional space where the pedestrian is
moving around. A part of pedestrian facility that the pedestrians can be seen is called a
pedestrian trap. It is the boundary of your study area.
Each pedestrian has origin and destination places. The origin and the destination of the
pedestrian are always within the pedestrian trap, when a pedestrian is generated by
manual operation. When a pedestrian is generated automatically by the program, the
pedestrian is always generated and attracted in a pedestrian generator. A pedestrian
