A computational agent model for monitoring and control of a virtual human agent's resources and exhaustion is presented. It models a physically grounded intelligent decision making process within the agent model for physical effort to be spent. Simulation results are discussed, and a formal analysis is presented on conditions under which the agent model functions properly, for example, such that it can be used to avoid running out of resources. The model is related to a model for monitoring or simulating a person's heart rate. Finally some validation experiments are briefly discussed. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2010.
