Pedestrian mobility is at the center of urban transportation systems. Therefore, understanding it is a necessary task to improve the mobility in cities. However, pedestrian mobility is extremely complex, and advance methods are needed to capture its dynamics. This chapter presents the main methods used to describe, model and control pedestrian behavior. The chapter introduces the fundamental relationships describing pedestrian dynamics, models representing the demand and assignment of pedestrians and, to conclude, innovative management strategies.
