Abstract: Accurate pedestrian simulation is a difficult yet important task. One of the main challenges with pedestrian simulation is providing the simulated pedestrians with appropriate amounts of route knowledge to be used in the route selection algorithm. In this paper, we propose a novel use of reinforcement learning as a means to represent different amounts of route knowledge. Using this techniques we show the impact learning about route distances and average route congestion levels has upon the egress time of pedestrians. We also look at the effect that dynamic congestion information has upon the efficiency of pedestrian egress.
