The modeling of pedestrian flows is of particular importance for the planning of pedestrian facilities and the preparation for emergency situations. Even though there is a wide variety of simulation models on the market, a simulation model that deals with bidirectional pedestrian flow adequately is still missing. This contribution proposes an event-based cellular automaton model that is capable of simulating bi- and unidirectional pedestrian streams. The model is built on a theoretically sound foundation. Its performance is demonstrated by a comparison to empirical data.
