Emergent crowd behavior can be explained by local pedestrian interactions. For example, a speed-matching model of speed control can be used to simulate pedestrian following and small groups of pedestrians. Can a similar model account for side-by-side walking?
Nonlinear analysis of participants' speeds reveals significant coupling between pairs of side-by-side walkers, and participants used a speed-matching strategy to control their speed.
