ACO is one of all-powerful meta-heuristics algorithms and some researchers have expressed the strength of some applications with the algorithm the evacuation route planning is the key aspect in case of fire disaster.Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) can be used in rescue planning. Altered ACO applied as the algorithm to demonstrate the potential path during emergency rescue. Physical interference during building rescue such as blockage or disaster complication has been studied in transitional… Expand
