Crowd Behavior Modeling : From Cellular Automata to Multi-Agent Systems

  title={Crowd Behavior Modeling : From Cellular Automata to Multi-Agent Systems},
  author={Stefania Bandini and Sara Manzoni and Giuseppe Vizzari},
The aim of this chapter is to introduce the current researches focused on the modeling and simulation of crowds of pedestrians. Research efforts on this topic are aimed, on one hand, at improving the scientific investigation of crowd related phenomena and, on the other, at the exploitation of the developed models and simulators to support designers and decision makers in their activities by providing them the possibility to envision the behaviour of crowds of pedestrians in specific scenarios.
