Abstract

Crowded spaces are prone to accidents and many casualties in case of fire or other emergency situations. They can happen in large buildings or urban spaces. Predicting crowds’ behavior is crucial for creating adequate simulators that practitioners can use for evaluating evacuation scenarios in such emergency cases. On the basis of a literature review of existing approaches to tackle this issue, a simulator called ModP was devised. ...
