Abstract


The purpose of throughput optimization is to optimize the passenger throughput at airport security checkpoint while still maintain the level of passenger safety. Queuing theory is frequently used to optimize the queuing efficiency. While in this paper, we apply cellular-automaton theory to simulate the passengerflow in the process and evaluate the performance of the airport security checkpoint. The simulation results show the validation of the cellular-automaton model.
