Research on evacuation simulation has received significant attention over the past few decades. Disasters, whether they were caused by nature or by humans, which claimed lives were also the impetus for the establishment of various evacuation studies. Numerous research points to the possibility of simulating an evacuation utilizing the Social Force Model (SFM) and a leading person or leader, but without using the multi-agent architecture. Within the scope of this article, the multi-agent architecture for crowd steering that we suggest will be investigated. The architecture will utilize a model known as the Social Force Model to figure out how evacuees will move around the area. After this step, the model is simulated in NetLogo to determine whether the architecture can model the evacuation scenario. A simulation test is carried out for us to investigate the degree to which the behavior of the original SFM and the message-passing model is comparable to one another. The result demonstrates that the proposed architecture can simulate the evacuation of pedestrians. In addition, the simulation model can simulate utilizing the grouping strategy as well as the no grouping technique. The findings also showed that the model can capture many evacuation patterns, such as an arch-shaped pattern at the opening of the exit.
