Abstract (Swedish)
Evaluating evacuation experiments is a time consuming work. This report explores the possibilities of an automated time saving procedure with the help of ordinary computer programs and video cameras. Simplifying the procedure means that more types of tests can be made, i.e. walking paths of people turning corners. Trials were performed during two days with fire safety engineering students at the Faculty of Engineering, Lund University. During half of the trials the first day they wore helmets with colorful markings of paper. The objective was to see if the computer programs could recognize the subjects with or without the helmet. The objective of the second day was to explore how people walk and behave when turning corners. All the trials... (More)

The objective of the second day was to explore how people walk and behave when turning corners. All the trials the second day the subjects wore helmets marked with colorful papers. The result show that people tend to walk after each other in lanes. This trend was obvious when the subjects were told to move faster and closer to each other. Trials made during these two days show that this is a reliable method to use but it not without flaws. (Less)
