Modeling human (agent) in evacuation planning is not just simply as controlling its movement but the challenge is how to quantify some behavior aspects of human as agent flexibility. Prometheus methodology for agent-based simulation has been applied in this paper to develop a simulation for evacuation planning in the building. Interaction and communication during evacuation between agents through protocol and its capabilities showed that the behavior of real human can be presented in a computer… CONTINUE READING
