In the system, we represent human cognitive processes as the “perception-action” behaviors of autonomous agents. That is, autonomous agents interact with a virtual environment and with each other following the simulated sensing, decision-making, and reacting/acting processes.   

An autonomous agent represents a human individual, and it bears a set of physical as well as cognitive properties of a human individual. These properties include:

Sensing objects Sensing an exit sign

The properties described form the basis of an agent’s behaviors in the prototype system, the system that is able to simulate not only simple behaviors (e.g., finding an exit) but also complex social behaviors (e.g., queuing and herding behaviors).
