Abstract

In creating an evacuation simulation for training and planning, realisticagents that reproduce known phenomenon are required. Evacuationsimulation in the airport domain requires additional featuresbeyond most simulations, including the unique behaviors of first-timevisitors who have incomplete knowledge of the area and familiesthat do not necessarily adhere to often-assumed pedestrianbehaviors. Evacuation simulations not customized for the airportdomain do not incorporate the factors important to it, leading toinaccuracies when applied to it.In this paper, we describe ESCAPES, a multiagent evacuationsimulation tool that incorporates four key features: (i) differentagent types; (ii) emotional interactions; (iii) informational inter actions;(iv) behavioral interactions. Our simulator reproduces phenomenaobserved in existing studies on evacuation scenarios andthe features we incorporate substantially impact escape time. Weuse ESCAPES to model the International Terminal at Los AngelesInternational Airport (LAX) and receive high praise from security officials.
