A multi-agent based framework for the simulation of human and social behaviors during emergency evacuations

Xiaoshan Pan, Charles S. Han, Ken Dauber, Kincho H. Law
2007 AI & Society: The Journal of Human-Centred Systems and Machine Intelligence  
This paper presents a multi-agent based framework for simulating human and social behavior during emergency evacuation.  ...  However, due to the scarcity of human and social behavioral data, these computational tools rely on assumptions that have been found inconsistent or unrealistic.  ...  Steering behaviors are essential for an autonomous agent to navigate its virtual environment in a realistic and improvisational manner.  ...

Human and social behavior in computational modeling and analysis of egress

Xiaoshan Pan, Charles S. Han, Ken Dauber, Kincho H. Law
2006 Automation in Construction  
This paper presents a framework for studying human and social behavior from the perspectives of human decision-making and social interaction and to incorporate such behavior systematically in a dynamic  ...  However, these tools rely heavily on assumptions about human individual and social behaviors, which have been found to be oversimplified, inconsistent and even incorrect.  ...  For example, if an agent detects obstacles both in front and on the right but not on the left, then it steers toward the left. • Seek. Seek acts to steer an agent toward a goal point.  ...

EVE Online is not for Everyone: Exceptionalism in Online Gaming Cultures

Kelly Bergstrom
2019 Human Technology: An Interdisciplinary Journal on Humans in ICT Environments  
Taken together, information from these sources reinforces a public perception that EVE is a game that is of interest only to a very specific kind of player.  ...  EVE Online is a space-themed massively multiplayer online game that has developed a reputation for being difficult and unwelcoming to new players.  ...  Less easy to pinpoint are the more subtle social forces that may steer potential players toward some games and not others, or away from games entirely.  ...

Real-time navigating crowds: scalable simulation and rendering

Julien Pettré, Pablo de Heras Ciechomski, Jonathan Maïm, Barbara Yersin, Jean-Paul Laumond, Daniel Thalmann
2006 Computer Animation and Virtual Worlds  
This paper introduces a framework for real-time simulation and rendering of crowds navigating in a virtual environment.  ...  The solution first consists in a specific environment preprocessing technique giving rise to navigation graphs, which are then used by the navigation and simulation tasks.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors thank Sébastien Schertenleib for technical support, Renaud Krumme-nacher and Mireille Clavien for designing the environments and Helena Grillon for proofreading the paper.  ...

Gradient-based steering for vision-based crowd simulation algorithms

T. B. Dutra, R. Marques, J.B. Cavalcante-Neto, C. A. Vidal, J. Pettré
2017 Computer graphics forum (Print)  
This thesis has thus two main contributions: the definition of a general purpose control scheme for steering synthetic vision-based agents; and the proposition of cost functions for evaluating the dangerousness  ...  They offer promising perspectives by more realistically imitating the way humans navigate according to what they perceive of their environment.  ...  They are able to steer agents using a visual apparatus similar to what real humans do when they walk. They abstract moving and static obstacles with no distinction of nature.  ...

A Multi-Agent Based Simulation Framework for the Study of Human and Social Behavior in Egress Analysis

Xiaoshan Pan, Charles S. Han, Kincho H. Law
2005 Computing in Civil Engineering (2005)   unpublished
There exist a wide variety of computational tools for the simulation and design of exits.  ...  However, due to the scarcity of behavioral data, these tools rely heavily on the assumptions about human individual and social behaviors.  ...  A seek acts to steer an agent toward a goal point. When a goal point is detected, an agent adjusts its orientation and velocity toward the goal.  ...
