Agent-based modelling of the evacuation of endangered areas in crisis situations

The evacuation process from endangered areas (EA) into safe spaces in crisis situations is modelled by means of simple agents (gate-ways equipped by sensors). Petri nets (PN) are utilized here to model the EA structure as well as the agents and their cooperation. More precisely, timed PN (TPN) and first-order hybrid PN (FOHPN) are used to do this.
