Walking speed similarity. Relation between the difference of a user’s velocity and the velocity of the crowd in their vicinity in dependence of the crowd density. Plot (a) shows the relation for a kernel radius of R=10 m and (b) for R=55 m, respectively. The plots depict that for low densities, the mean value is around 0.3  ms 1 which corresponds to the variance in pedestrian walking velocity in unrestricted environments [64]. The differences decay towards 0 by increasing the crowd density.
