We developed an agent-based occupancy simulator, free to use at Our next step is to validate the results with real occupancy data of all spaces in a small building. If you have or know such data, please let us know. Thanks.

Your feedback on the App is welcome too.

Not sure UnmetHours is the right place for this. This looks more like bldg-sim material.

I know that Burak Gunay and Liam O'Brian (not sure if they are on unmethours) at Carleton University did similar work on this, they may have measured data. Burak even formulated their models as an OpenStudio measure that you could run to stochasticize (made up word) your energy model at run time.
