We introduce a new specification of the social force model in which pedestrians explicitly predict the place and time of the next collision in order to avoid it. This and other specifications of the social force model are calibrated, using genetic algorithms, on a set of pedestrian trajectories, obtained tracking with laser range finders the movement of pedestrians in controlled experiments, and their performance is compared. The results show that the proposed method has a better performance in describing the trajectory set.
