Pedestrian model for a Tokyo style intersection of Oxford Circus

As has been recently announced, Oxford circus is to get a pedestrian-friendly revamp. Here is a video of a pedestrian model, first referred to me by Duncan Smith, a PhD student at CASA. The model consists of 5000 people, where a particle-based system was used to run the simulation. These particles were then replaced by animated people.

The model was created by designhive, and a map of the redesign can be seen here.

Here, the pedestrian and traffic simulation models are combined with a 3D Studio Max model of the Oxford Circus proposals, which makes this finished video very realistic.

This is a type of application, where a 3D visualisation of the model can be used to enhance the communication of ideas, and making it more accessible to others.
