Mobility study is composed by many research areas which one interests us : urban mobility. Urban movement study aims at looking and designing human displacements in an urban environment. In the litterature, two main kinds of mobility are emergent: macroscopic displacements and microscopic movements.<div></div> Our study takes place at the boundary of them. We want to describe human displacements in a city by describing their behaviour. We will use two kinds of tools: Multi-Agent Sytems (MAS) and theories based on probabilistic laws. People behaviours depend on many parameters like social class, geographical location... So we need to look on these elements.<div></div> In this article, we suggest an agent based meta-model which intends to describe displacements of a population in a defined environment: a city. This meta-model is encapsulated in a method which begins by the creation of a theorical mobility model and finishes by the development of a simulator. A toolkit has been created to program this kind of application. It is a multi-agent library which extends MadKit. It keeps the philosophy of the presented meta-model.
