Abstract
Paper cover

The identification and construction of datasets of human activities is an extremely time-consuming and resource intensive task, yet researchers cannot refrain from such datasets. The publicly available datasets may not reflect all the researchers’ requirements and are not scrupulously documented. In addition, these datasets can cope with just a limited and predefined set of behaviors. To address these challenges, we developed an instrument that allows to simulate the behavior of agents interacting with an environment. The environment is a customized configuration, equipped with sensors. The simulation generates as output a stream of events stemming from activated sensors. In addition, the agents behavior is not fully deterministic, so as to reflect the dynamic nature of human beings and to be as realistic as possible.
