Real world models of large-scale crowd movement lead to computationally intractable problems implied by various classes of non-linear stochastic differential equations. Recently, cellular automata (CA) have been successfully applied to model the dynamics of vehicular traffic, ants and pedestrians’ crowd movement and evacuation without taking into account mental properties. In this paper we study a large-scale crowd movement based on a CA approach and evaluated by the following three criteria: the minimization of evacuation time, maximization of instantaneous flow of pedestrians, and maximization of mentality-based synchronization of a crowd. Our computational experiments show that there exist interdependencies between the three criteria.
