Agent-based models for Venice

While reading the Venice 2.0 blog by Fabio Carrera which explores research projects in Venice, Italy, I came across two interesting agent-based models, the first is simulating Venetian boat traffic for city officials (click here to see a movie). The second model is the the evacuation of Saint Mark's square both models were co-created with the Redfish Group (Click here to see an earlier post on the work of Redfish).

Further information about the work can be seen on the SantVe site.
