AbstractAs a common human activity in subway platform, waiting occupies a large amount of pedestrians' time and plays an important role in the aggregation, circulation and segregation of pedestrian flows. In order to explore the behaviors and characteristics of waiting pedestrians and their effects on walking behavior of passing pedestrians, we carry out an investigation at two major Beijing's subway stations to collect the data of pedestrians at subway platforms by using field observations and video recordings. The extension of fuzzy logic based models, incorporating with the behavioral heuristic rules, are proposed to investigate pedestrian's waiting behaviors based on the waiting modes at subway platform. In addition, the effects of varied environments including train arrival and density variety on pedestrian's perception are taken into account in the modeling process. Simulations on real life scenarios of a major Beijing subway station are implemented to validate and calibrate the proposed models by contrasting the simulation results with the collected field data. The effectiveness of the proposed models is also demonstrated. Finally, the effects of waiting pedestrians with different modes on the dynamics of passing pedestrians are evaluated and quantified by these simulation models. Simulation results show that the waiting pedestrians under different waiting modes have different influences on the delay time, walking speed and turn angle of passing pedestrians, especially under high density level. Our findings can give some recommendations for the organization of pedestrian flows as well as the layout of facilities and waiting zones at subway platforms. (C) 2019 Elsevier Inc.
