Abstract

We focus on the work-to-home trips with little restriction by time and examine the possibility of pedestrian-traffic inducement through improving pedestrian environments. Based on a method in which individual difference is expressed as probability distribution and a limitation of human faculty to discriminate something is reflected by a threshold value, pedestrian-traffic assignment model different from existing models is proposed. According to the results of some hypothetic simulations, it is found that the improvement of pedestrian environments helps induce pedestrians to choose the area where a planner intends them to flow.
