This paper reports on the development of a multi-agent cellular automata model of pedestrian movement and decision making within the built environment. The approach will lead to a system that may serve as a tool in the design process to better understand how a design will influence user behaviour.

TLDR
A model of pedestrians group dynamics in normal and evacuation situations, 2D cellular automata, multi-agent model is created that takes into account some strategic abilities of each agent/pedestrian.
Knowledge Representation of Pedestrian Dynamics in Crowd: Formalism of Cellular Automata
TLDR
The article proposes a modified formalization of Cellular Automata that enables the introduction of a new automata class with automata exceeding their classic formula, under which the condition of a cell depends only on local relations.
Pedestrian flow: A proposal for a cognitive multi-agent architecture
TLDR
The cognitive multi-agent simulation with the cellular automata is an excellent technique in the analysis of flow and the pedestrian behaviors and it is possible to model and understand the processes related to the social interactions.

An Agent Model of Pedestrian and Group Dynamics: Experiments on Group Cohesion
TLDR
This work describes an innovative agent-based based approach encapsulating in the pedestrian's behavioural model effects representing both proxemics and a simplified account of influences related to the presence of groups in the crowd.
Agent-based approaches to pedestrian modelling
This thesis investigates the early stages of the software development process for agent-based models of pedestrian behaviour. Planning for pedestrians is becoming more important as planners and
A Cellular Automata Based Model for Pedestrian and Group Dynamics: Motivations and First Experiments
TLDR
A cellular automata based model is described, introducing an innovative behavioral model that encapsulates the theory of proxemics and a simplified representation of the influences determined by the presence of groups of pedestrians in the crowd.

A BDI approach to agent-based modelling of pedestrians
TLDR
Whether the belief-desire-intention (BDI) architecture is appropriate for this domain is explored, followed by a high-level conceptual design using Prometheus, an agent-oriented design methodology, and a discussion of the implementation using JACK.

A cellular automaton model for freeway traffic
TLDR
A stochastic discrete automaton model is introduced to simulate freeway traffic and shows a transition from laminar traffic flow to start-stop- waves with increasing vehicle density, as is observed in real freeway traffic.
Microscopic Simulation of Evacuation Processes on Passenger Ships
TLDR
A simple CA-model for the description of crowd motion is presented and its implementation in a simulation software outlined and the validity of the assumptions and the scope of the applications will have to be scrutinised by comparison with empirical data from actual evacuations or drills.
Emergent Fundamental Pedestrian Flows from Cellular Automata Microsimulation
TLDR
A particle hopping model for a single-directional pedestrian flow over a multilane walkway is presented and indicates that a heuristically derived minimal rule set produces flow patterns that closely resemble the accepted fundamental diagrams.
Towards a multi-agent system for visualising simulated behaviour within the built environment
TLDR
A multi-agent system approach for visualising simulated user behaviour within a building can be used to support the assessment of design performance and is motivated by its promise to simulate autonomous individuals and the interaction between them.
Microscopic Simulation of Urban Traffic Based on Cellular Automata
TLDR
This work presents a traffic simulation tool for urban road networks which is based on the Nagel–Schreckenberg Model, and modeling traffic flow dynamics using cellular automata allows to run large network traffic simulations with only comparatively low computational efforts.
Towards Anticipatory Traffic Forecast - Modelling of Route Choice Behaviour
TLDR
A two-layer agent-based architecture for the simulation of traffic flow is introduced and it is shown that in such scenarios, with information being a key commodity, a layered architecture has advantages over the traditional single-layer simulators.
Gas-Kinetic Modeling and Simulation of Pedestrian Flows
TLDR
A new pedestrian flow model based on the gaskinetic modeling paradigm is established that upgrades the mesoscopic equations to a microscopic pedestrian flow simulation model and is shown to produce plausible speed-density functions from which walking speeds and travel times can be derived for a variety of conditions.
Metastable states in cellular automata for traffic flow
TLDR
It is shown that this model exhibits metastable states, thus sheding some light on the prerequisites for the occurance of hysteresis effects in the flow-density relation, and proposes a simple generalization of the NaSch model by introducing a velocity-dependent randomization.
