Agent Evacuation Simulation Using a Hybrid Network and Free Space Models
The simulation of a large number of people’s evacuation behaviors is assumed to support the decision of rescue operations or prompt planning for disaster mitigation. Simulations of agents at wide areas with fine resolutions require a lot of computational resources and computer powers. We propose a hybrid traffic simulation combining network and area models to simulate agents’ behaviors. This paper presents that a hybrid traffic simulator had same results that have used all free space models. This indicates that our system can simulate behaviors a huge number of agents at wide areas with high resolutions by reasonable computational resources.
