A Multi-Agent Cellular Automata System for Visualising Simulated Pedestrian Activity
This paper describes the first impressions of the development of a multi-agent system that can be used for visualising simulated pedestrian activity and behaviour to support the assessment of design performance. This system is based on cellular automata and agent technology. Agents represent objects or people with their own behaviour, moving over a pedestrian network. Each agent is located in a simulated space, based on the cellular automata grid. Each iteration of the simulation is based on a parallel update of the agents conforming local rules. Agents positioned within an environment have sensors to perceive their local neighbourhood and affect their environment. In this manner, autonomous individuals and the interaction between them can be simulated by the system.
