Crowd Simulation, Visualization and Simulation


In this paper, we investigate the appropriateness of a dynamic grouping structure for crowd simulation modeling in emergency situations. Our dynamic grouping structure comprises a combination of the structure of the particle systems and ViCrowd models where the crowd is treated based on individuals and groups. In order to evaluate the appropriateness of our proposed structure we implement a prototype of a crowd simulation model that incorporates this structure. Some visual simulation outputs and results are also presented. Finally, we discuss the appropriateness of such a structure and its potential in modeling crowd simulation in particular for emergency situations.
