  author={Masaru Okaya and Tomoichi Takahashi},
Crowd evacuation simulations are becoming a tool to analyze and assess the safety of occupants in buildings. Agent-based simulation provides a platform on which to compute individual and collective behaviors that occur in crowds. We propose a human behavior model in evacuation based on the Belief-Desire-Intention (BDI) model and Helbing's agent behavior model. Human relationships affect the states of BDI at each simulation step, and altruism forces among agents are introduced in Helbing's model… 

Crowd Behavior Modeling in Emergency Evacuation Scenarios Using Belief-Desire-Intention Model

This chapter proposes an integrated multi-agent Belief-Desire-Intention (BDI) model for emergency egress simulation. The systems works in a partially observable environment which contains

Multi-agent modelling of seismic crisis

Evacuations are necessary during earthquake crisis to mitigate and avoid risks of exposure to hazards that can cause injury or death. Evacuation are social in nature. This is mainly because the main

Review of Agent Based Modelling of Social Attachment in Crisis Situations

It was found that social attachment influences mobility in the different stages of evacuation (pre, during and post).

SOLACE a multi-agent model of human behaviour driven by social attachment during seismic crisis

SOLACE is an attempt to show the effect of social attachment on the number of victims, and the time that it takes, to reach a safe area; this increases the realism in evacuation modelling.

Modeling and Simulation of Fire Evacuation in Public Buildings

An agent-based model for modeling and simulation of fire evacuation in public buildings and the model is implemented and tested using the GAMA agent- based simulation platform.

A Systems Thinking in Natural Disaster Management : Evacuation Preparedness

A natural disaster is the effect of the earth's natural hazards, for example, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, heat waves, or landslides. The occurrence has affected

A Systems Thinking in Natural Disaster Management: Evacuation Preparedness

A natural disaster is the effect of the earth's natural hazards, for example, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, heat waves, or landslides. The occurrence has affected



BDI agent model based evacuation simulation

This work's BDI model based simulations generate emergent behaviors in a crowd evacuation such as a result of interactions in the crowd, and human relationships are factors that influence the psychological conditions.

ESCAPES: evacuation simulation with children, authorities, parents, emotions, and social comparison

ESAPES is described, a multiagent evacuation simulation tool that incorporates four key features: different agent types; emotional interactions; informational interactions; behavioral interactions; and features that substantially impact escape time.

Crowd Simulation for Emergency Response using BDI Agent Based on Virtual Reality

A novel VR (virtual reality) trained BDI (belief, desire, intention) software agent used to construct crowd simulations for emergency response to mimic crowd evacuation from an area under a terrorist bomb attack is presented.

Computational modeling of human and social behaviors for emergency egress analysis

This dissertation addresses the problem of bringing the perspectives of psychology and sociology about human behavior in emergencies into computational models for egress analysis by incorporation of diverse human behavior into a Multi-Agent Simulation System for Egress analysis (MASSEgress).

Controlling individual agents in high-density crowd simulation

The HiDAC system (for High-Density Autonomous Crowds) focuses on the problem of simulating the local motion and global wayfinding behaviors of crowds moving in a natural manner within dynamically changing virtual environments.

The Need for Behavioral Theory in Evacuation Modeling

The paper argues for the inclusion of a comprehensive behavioral conceptual model in computer evacuation models, specifically by highlighting the benefits of behavioral theory for evacuation models and providing examples of social theories used to predict whether people will evacuate from disasters in communities.

Modeling Crowd and Trained Leader Behavior during Building Evacuation

This article considers animating evacuation in complex buildings by crowds who might not know the structure's connectivity, or who find routes accidentally blocked. It takes into account simulated

Modifications of the Helbing-Molnár-Farkas-Vicsek Social Force Model for Pedestrian Evolution

It is pointed out that numerical values of certain parameters in that model may produce counterintuitive results when applied to the motion of an isolated pedestrian or a small number of pedestrians.

Emotions to control agent deliberation

This paper proposes and formalizes the eliciting conditions of hope, fear, joy, and distress according to a well-known psychological model of human emotion, which formalize the idea that emotions focus an agent's attention on what is important in each state.

Crowd Simulation

An algorithm for simulating crowds in a variety of situations is described as a Markov Decision Process and randomization techniques are applied along with physically and biologically based methods in order to feasibly solve this problem without discretization.
