Heuristic search methods and cellular automata modelling for layout design

  title={Heuristic search methods and cellular automata modelling for layout design},
  author={Fadratul Hafinaz Hassan},
Spatial layout design must consider not only ease of movement for pedestrians under normal conditions, but also their safety in panic situations, such as an emergency evacuation in a theatre, stadium or hospital. Using pedestrian simulation statistics, the movement of crowds can be used to study the consequences of different spatial layouts. Previous works either create an optimal spatial arrangement or an optimal pedestrian circulation. They do not automatically optimise both problems… CONTINUE READING
