Simulating pedestrian mobility is a typical centralized problem where each agent must interact with a plurality of other agents in order to make decisions about its local path planning. Distrimobs is a parallel- and distributed-agent–based pedestrian mobility simulator able to represent thousands of agents while keeping a good scalability. The aim of the Distrimobs simulator is to simulate the whole Carnival of Venice. In this work we present the Distrimobs approach for parallelization of the computations and some experimental results of performance intensive scenarios. These results highlight the scalability and the computational complexity of the simulator.
