Impulsion is a software library for simulating groups of people that interacts socially with each other. At its very core lies an algorithm that replicates our cognitive process of understanding human territories. The algorithm is grounded on the social theories of territorially and face-to-face interaction. The software library is developed for Unity3D and allows to create small crowds that convincingly resemble a social gathering.

Impulsion is an integral part of the project Icelandic Language and Culture Training in Virtual Reykjavik. The software library is the cornerstone of the interactive experience with the virtual characters of the language trainer.
