In this paper, the simulation of an occupant's behaviour in a single-occupant ambient intelligent environment is addressed. The algorithm of the simulator is designed flexible enough to accept different environmental profiles including the number of areas and the connections between them along with different occupant's profiles including expected daily occupancy pattern of him/her and the uncertainty of his/her behaviour to follow this occupancy pattern. The generated occupancy signal by the simulator represents the occupancy of areas by assuming a signal level for the occupancy of each area in a single-occupant environment with the resolution of one minute in a whole day activity of the occupant in the environment. The validity of the simulator will be verified by tuning the simulator's parameters to occupancy data collected by sensory agents from a real equivalent environment. By applying the generated data from this simulator to the data mining techniques, the ability of different techniques will be investigated.
