Abstract

Micro-scale agent-based modeling can be used for the simulation of pedestrian movement for low and high density scenarios and of the effect of changes in an environment. Such models can also be used for pedestrian dynamics in city centers to show the design effects in the shopping environment. This paper focuses on the generation of the movement network and the underlying behavioral rules that conducts the activation of pedestrians on the network representing a shopping environment. The store visits will be realized by Monte Carlo simulation.
