In this paper, a character reference model, based on its perception and reasoning, with the objective of achieving visual realism in an Intelligent Virtual Environment (IVE) is proposed. The necessary steps for obtaining the model are: i) to identify the characteristics of the objects and of the virtual character of the IVE; ii) design of the IVE model; iii) specification of the Artificial Intelligence technique (AI); iv) defining the physical level and semantic system for the integration of the character with the environment; v) validation of the proposed model in a prototype; and vi) evaluation of the results. The proposed model allows generating an appropriate dynamics between the character en the elements of the virtual environment, which is required in several applications.
