A second-order stochastic model describing a large scale crowd is formulated, and an efficient evacuation strategy for agents in complex surroundings is proposed and solved numerically. The method consists in reshaping the crowd contour by making use of the crowd density feedback that is commonly available from geolocation technologies, and Kantorovich distance is used to transport the current shape into the desired one. The availability of the crowd density enables to solve the otherwise challenging forward-backward problem. Using this approach, we demonstrate via numerical results that the crowd migrates through the complex environment as designed.
