Abstract—This paper presents a town street model which is a natural model to describe general borders of residential sections/blocks in town streets, and discusses the features of the model. This paper takes the typical residential blocks in Tokyo, presents the features of the blocks, and reproduces future general block borders which are taking into the updates in temporal borders based on Schelling model. We employ two features in this paper: one is the lengths of borders in sections/blocks, and the other is the angles between two borders in sections/blocks, where the boarders are represented by the piecewise linear. Then, we show that we can find the human features in the general town street patterns based on a boundary effect and a fluctuation.
Index Terms—autonomous moving multi-agents, Schelling model, and segregation
