Walkers Behaviour: From Analysis To Applications

June 4th, 2018
1:30-5:30 pm (UTC+2)
M2S Lab, Campus de Ker Lann, Avenue robert Schuman, 35170 Bruz, France


The webinar aims at presenting the latest work and research perspectives about

1) the analysis and modeling of how walkers behave in relation to their surrounding environment and

2) the applications of these models in several fields such as health, informatics or robotics.

In particular, one main topic that will be discussed is the interaction between walkers. Interactions between individuals are at the very core of our society since they represent the basic synergies of our daily life. When walking in the street, we take information about our surrounding environment to interact with people, move without collision, alone or in a group, intercept, meet or escape to somebody. Understanding the visuo-motor strategies during such a task is a challenging research question due its dynamic characteristics and the multiple factors involved. Nevertheless, it offers new opportunity to provide a deeper analysis of the walkers behaviour by considering tasks that are closer to their everyday life
