Robotic aid in crowd evacuation simulation

Ibraheem Sakour, Huosheng Hu
2015 2015 7th Computer Science and Electronic Engineering Conference (CEEC)  
Evacuating a building in case of emergency can lead to confusion, which in turn can cause a greater risk than the cause of the evacuation.  ...  Existing work on crowd simulation is analysed. Finally, simulators that can support robot models as aid for disaster evacuation and search and rescue missions are discussed.  ...  It can be tuned to simulate different types of crowds, ranging from extreme panic situations (fire evacuation) to high-density crowds under calm conditions (leaving a cinema after a movie).  ...

'Rationality' in Collective Escape Behaviour: Identifying Reference Points of Measurement at Micro and Macro Levels

Milad Haghani, Majid Sarvi
2019 Journal of Advanced Transportation  
Evacuation behaviour of human crowds is often characterised by the notion of 'irrational behaviour'.  ...  These results highlight the importance of guiding evacuation decisions particularly in heavily crowded spaces.  ...  Therefore, they create evacuation scenarios in the same geometric layout and under three different levels of crowding.  ...

Revisiting crowd behaviour analysis through deep learning: Taxonomy, anomaly detection, crowd emotions, datasets, opportunities and prospects

Francisco Luque Sánchez, Isabelle Hupont, Siham Tabik, Francisco Herrera
2020 Information Fusion  
Models that employ Deep Learning to solve crowd anomaly detection, one of the proposed stages, are reviewed in depth, and the few works that address emotional aspects of crowds are outlined.  ...  The importance of bringing emotional aspects into the study of crowd behaviour is remarked, together with the necessity of producing real-world, challenging datasets in order to improve the current solutions  ...  The rest of the paper will provide a comprehensive review on these two under-explored aspects of crowd behaviour analysis.  ...
