Even though we can't mention everyone, who supported or supports us – accu:rate wouldn't have been so successfull without the help and dedication of a lot of people.
University of Applied Sciences Munich, Prof. Dr. Gerta Köster
The Munich University of Applied Sciences researches the modeling and simulation of pedestrian flows since 2010, when Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Köster took up her professorship of Scientific Computing. Since 2007 Prof. Köster has been working in security research, in particular in the investigation and modeling of crowd flow simulations. Until 2010 she was responsible for the topic "Crowd Control" and lead the subprojects on flow simulation in the projects SinoVE and REPKA at Siemens AG, Corporate Technology Department promoted by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF ). In her research she appreciates robust processes and applicability to practically implement scientific progress.
Since 2010 she leads a research group at the Munich University of Applied Sciences, working on pedestrian flow simulations. In the BMBF project MEPKA, the „Optimal Steps Model“ was developed, that allows people to have a variable step length to come closer to the target. In the BMBF project MultikOSi she and her team explore how psycho-social behavior can be meaningfully integrated into computer models.
Technical University of Munich, Prof. Dr.-Ing. André Borrmann
The Chair of Computational Modeling and Simulation under the chair of Prof. Dr.-Ing. André Borrmann researches on the modeling and simulation of pedestrian flows since its inception in 2012. One of the research priorities of the Department are scale transitions between different modeling levels (macroscopic, mesoscopic, microscopic) in pedestrian flow simulations. Among other thigs the Chair is involved in Research Cooperation MultikOSi, which is founded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
