Long Term Real Trajectory Reuse Through Region Goal Satisfaction

This paper is motivated by the objective of improving the realism of real-time simulated crowds by reducing short term collision avoidance through long term anticipation of pedestrian trajectories. For this aim, we choose to reuse outdoor pedestrian trajectories obtained with non-invasive means. This initial step is achieved by analyzing the recordings of multiple synchronized video cameras. In a second o-line stage, we t as long as possible trajectory segments within predefined paths made of a succession of region goals. The concept of region goal is exploited to enforce the principle of "sufficient satisfaction": it allows the pedestrians to relax the prescribed trajectory to the traversal of successive region goals. However, even if a fitted trajectory is modified due to collision avoidance, we are still able to make long-term trajectory anticipation and distribute the collision avoidance shift over a long distance.
