I want to simulate an emergency evacuation of an office floor using a multi agent system. Basically every human in the building will be an agent and he will interact with agents that he meets on his way.
My first issue is how to find a path from where the agent is when the evacuation starts, to the “safe” location. I thought about memorizing locations on the map so the human can go from one point to another (like a graph), avoiding the walls between his location and the exit. I will probably use MotionPath.
Now, if I want the agents to interact when they collide I have to use Physics.
Is it possible to use MotionPath and Physics at the same time?
The humans will be models without joints, they will not be animated.
What kind of control should I use for the humans and what kind of objects(Kinematic or Dynamic)?
I am new to jMonkey so now I am researching, any advice will be very appreciated
