#Presentation

EscapeSim is a UbikSim library which focuses on emergency management in indoor environments

EscapeSim is based on UbikSim, see UbikSim

#Downloading and using EscapeSim To work with EscapeSim in gitHub:

  • Install the gitHub plugin
  • Clone the EscapeSim repository link
  • Download and include in your local folder [third party libraries, configuration files and NetBeans files] (http://dit.upm.es/~eserrano/EscapeSim/libs/)
  • Now you can use EscapeSim as a NetBeans project (compile it, run it, etc.). Besides, the repository contains a .gitingore file to keep you from committing files which are not the source code.

##Remote EscapeSim

We are experimenting with the possibility of using EscapeSim as a server which is connected to a number of clients (smartphones, tablets, and etcetera) in order to perform participatory simulations. The result is a Remote version of EscapeSim.

The remote version of EscapeSim is based on MuTiS (MUlti-Threaded clIent/Server plug-in for mason), a plug-in for the MASON Multiagent Simulation.

##Evacuation plan algorithms Under the scope of EscapeSim, we also develop novel algorithms for emergency evacuations. The following pseudo code (only in Spanish) is an extension of MT-D* which we have tested with EscapeSim. Images licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

##Ontologies

Another research line we follow with EscapeSim is de definition of Ontologies in the emergency management domain. Ontologies allow common understanding of the structure of information to be shared among people or software agents. For this scope, this means that if tools are based on the use of ontologies, these are more likely to be understood by developers and to be connected successfully with other tools (whether they are developed by other researchers or not). Furthermore, ontologies enable the reuse of domain knowledge and and given the number of projects that address the emergency problem, reusing components is a must.
