Title: Creation and evaluation of a concept for the objective validation of movement models in multi-agent simulations

This paper deals with the creation and evaluation of a concept for the validation of movement models in multi-agent simulations, which enables an objective and automatable validation. For this purpose values have to be extracted from experiments conducted with the simulation systems to be compared with real data. Another part of the validation is the examination of the agent behaviour and the comparison of this behaviour with the expected behaviour.

Additionally, the concept is used for several movement models with different model approaches. This allows the evaluation of the informative value of the validation concept as well as conclusions about characteristics a movement model should have to produce valid results. The design and functionality of a model, which was created as part of this paper, will be discussed in detail.
