Title: Simulating social interaction scenarios in an office.
Authors: Dr. Michele Bezzi, Dr. Robert Groenevelt, Mr. Frederick Schlereth
Work team coordination is becoming a major challenge in the contemporary complex working environments.
Coordination process takes place through direct interaction and explicit communication, but it takes also advantage of informal social network within team members.
Consequently, in order to develop realistic model of team coordination, we need to measure and model such interactions in real world environments.
We present an agent-based model for simulating people movement in a workspace, which may be used as tool for developing and testing social relationship models.
We demonstrate the model by simulating office life in one of our laboratories and comparing the results to actual measurements obtained with a sensor network.
