Development of Pedestrian Behavior Model Taking Account of Intention


In order for robots to safely move in human-robot coexisting environment, they must be able to predict their sur- rounding people’s behavior. In this study, a pedestrian behavior model that produces humanlike behavior was developed. The model takes into account the pedestrian’s intention. Based on the intention, the model pedestrian sets its subgoal and moves toward the subgoal according to virtual forces affected by other pedestrian and environment. The proposed model was verified through pedestrian observation experiments.
