Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Populating an urban environment realistically with thousands of virtual humans is a challenging endeavour. Previous research into simulating the many facets of human behaviour has focused primarily on the control of an individual’s movements. However, a large proportion of pedestrians in an urban environment walk in groups and this should be reflected in a simulation. This paper, therefore, proposes a model for controlling groups of pedestrians by adjusting the pedestrians’ speeds.
