Developers of pedestrian models often overlook the fact that pedestrians are subjected to a multitude of influences when walking. The majority of existing models only focus on a single aspect, typically the avoidance of obstructions or other pedestrians. PEDFLOW, a microscopic, agent-based model, uses an implementation of context-mediated behavior to enable the agents to deal with multiple cause-effect relations in a well-defined and flexible manner. This paper explains the basic idea behind the approach and illustrates it through examples.
