Abstract [en]

In this paper, a new framework is presented to optimize evacuation instructions. By giving optimized instructions to the evacuees (for example about which route to take), traffic conditions and, therefore, the evacuation efficiency are optimized. To solve the problem in an efficient way, the problem is decomposed into three simpler problems, namely the optimization of turning fractions, the optimization of instructions given the turning fractions, and the approximation of compliance behavior. Mutual consistency of these sub-problems is enforced through a fixed-point formulation.
