summary In this paper, we present an object-oriented approach for simulating agent-based egress behavior. The tool can be used when planners or designers need to assess the implications of their design or planning decisions. The tool is a web-based application that is being developed using standard protocols and technologies such as HTTP, HTML, and Java. It also demonstrates the effect of new building designs by simulating human evacuation behavior and relates the behavior of people. The existing models to describe the behavior of crowds usually deal with macroscopic variables like the average speed or the flow. Our aim is to model crowds as a malleable, moving masses, hoping that a more refined simulation might be achieved by considering each avatars behavior.
