Whereas the standard simulation model simulates a "progressive" movement of agents with a fixed start and endpoint, the proposed model aims at an instantaneous and "continuous" distribution.

Microscopic agent-based simulations promise the meaningful inclusion of crowd dynamics in planning processes. However, such complex urban issues depend on a multiplicity of criteria. Thus, an isolated model cannot represent the walk of pedestrians meaningfully in planning contexts. This paper reframes crowd simulation as collaborative experimentati...
