‘Inclusive design’ is an important approach in product development that aims to estimate the numbers of people potentially excluded from the developed product. However, there is limited consideration of ‘inclusive design’ in computer aided design systems, especially in crowd modelling and simulation. This research aims to apply the ‘inclusive design’ approach to human behaviour modelling and simulation in crowded spaces based on video observation analysis. Conceptual behaviours are developed as guidelines to understand human movement and behaviour within the recorded video. The research is based on the ‘inclusive design’ approach and behaviours have been acquired from three major human movements of free, same direction and opposite direction movement. Almost 19,000 individual humans were observed within six hours of video recording and categorized into six different behaviours.
