Occupancy Simulator is a web-based App that simulates occupant presence and movement in a building using the Markov-chain model. The App takes high-level input on occupants, spaces and events, then simulates occupant movement and generates occupant schedules for each space. The generated schedules capture diversity and stochastic nature of occupant activities. These schedules can be downloaded and used for building simulation.

Expertise Required: 

Easy to use, no need of special expertise.

Audience: 

Energy modelers

Input: 

Building spaces, space types, occupant types, etc.

Output: 

Occupant schedules at space and building levels. Individual occupant schedule.

Strengths: 

Easy to use. Capture stochastics of occupant presence and movement to generate realistic schedules for building performance simulation use.
