Fundamental Diagrams and Multiple Pedestrian Streams

The application of a fundamental diagram is one possible concept to base macroscopic models of pedestrian streams on. These diagrams have been derived for unidirectional pedestrian flows in restricted spatial settings like corridors and bottlenecks. In this paper we present some ideas to possibly extend this concept to cases of multi-directional fluxes on a plane, possibly with obstacles.
