ABSTRACT
Our main aim with this paper is to contribute towards the methodologies on the level of service which the pedestrians as vulnerable road users feel walking along the sidewalks, as well as contribution towards the process for modeling and simulation on pedestrian’s movement. Namely, microscopic simulation model SFStreetSIModel, version 1.0 has been developed which simulates movement of vehicles and pedestrians on two-lane two-way section on low speed urban street. Beside the remaining outer parameters, SFStreetSIModel, version 1.0 simulates 15 minutes intensity on pedestrians on directions, as a measure on the level of service for pedestrians under influence of side friction caused by static obstacles on the road and the sidewalk: on-street parking and street furniture. Here, the modal which refers on the modeling condition, parameters and attributes, as well as the process elements for determination of the level of service for pedestrians, will be shown.
