Emotion Contagion Model for Crowds
Keywords:Crowd simulation, emotion contagion in crowds, virtual agents
Latest advances in crowd simulation models that attempt to make agents with more realistic human-like behaviors explore heterogeneity of agent behaviors in order to achieve increased overall simulation realism. In general, human behavioral and psychological studies are used as base of knowledge and researchers try to simulate observed human behavior patterns within virtual agents. In this direction, this paper implements an emotion contagion model, within crowd simulation scenarios, in order to create realistic perception of agent behaviors on crowds.
