The simulation of crowd dynamics is an important tool for a number of applications, including architectural design, pedestrian transport and escape planning. The use of robots has been recently proposed as a mechanism to improve the efficiency of pedestrian transport by modifying the large-scale dynamics of crowds. However, in order to simulate the effect of introducing robots into a crowd, one must have a model of how individuals can react to the form and behavior of the robots that are introduced. Finally, this paper provides an overview of the existing work on human-robot interaction in the field of social robotics and illustrates how this information can be integrated into crowd dynamics simulations
