Using sequences generated by sampling the wavefunction of the quantum driven pendulum studied by Berman et al. as input, we compute the average walk length before trapping on a periodic one-dimensional lattice with one trap. Comparison with theoretical results gives a quantitative indication of the random behaviour of the system.
