ESCAPE Project

ESCAPE is an ANR project that focus on the simulation of urban area evacuation in case of catastrophe. The simulator is based on the gama simulation platform and is based on agent-based modeling of the evacuation process: this allow to explore individually based strategy, including individual knowledge about evacuation plan, emotion during egress and individually based mobility model with several modes. The project focus on three case studies: chemical risk with industry explosion in the center of the city of Rouen (France), flash flood risk at the valley of Authion (France) and Hoa Binh dam break in the region of Hanoi – Red River (Vietnam).

Gama is a modeling and simulation platform that allows computer scientist as well as none programmers to use agent based modeling to study social phenomena. For more, see http://gama-platform.org.
