  author={Soraia Raupp Musse and Daniel Thalmann},
  booktitle={Computer Animation and Simulation},
This paper presents a model of crowd behavior to simulate the motion of a generic population in a specific environment. The individual parameters are created by a distributed random behavioral model which is determined by few parameters. This paper explores an approach based on the relationship between the autonomous virtual humans of a crowd and the emergent behavior originated from it. We have used some concepts from sociology to represent some specific behaviors and represent the visual… 

Group behavior from video: a data-driven approach to crowd simulation

A data-driven method of simulating a crowd of virtual humans that exhibit behaviors imitating real human crowds that is demonstrated through examples in which various characteristics of group behaviors are captured and reproduced in simulated crowds.
