This paper describes the Army-funded exploratory work in progress at the Target Behavioral Response Laboratory. The final objective of the project is to develop data-based general approaches to modeling and simulation of human behavior and quantitative methods of verification and validation. Crowd behavior data were collected under controlled laboratory conditions. Mathematical models of human behavior were derived which were then coded into computational models to produce predicted paths. These processes allow visual comparisons between outputs from simulations and behavioral data collected in the laboratory from human subjects. The results of these preliminary efforts will initiate further work in the methods of incorporating human behavioral data into models and validation procedures.
