We study a zero range process characterized by the presence of a threshold switching the particle dynamics from the independent particle model to the simple exclusion process. The setting is relevant to pedestrian dynamics in obscured corridors. We investigate the hydrodynamic limit of the model considering both symmetric and asymmetric jump probabilities, and highlight the effect of the threshold parameter on the resulting behavior of the diffusion coefficient and of the outgoing current.
