Abstract

In this article, we will describe a project in which the concept of cellular automata (CA) has been used to develop a simulation model for an evacuation system. A cellular automata is a mathematical tool which can govern complex systems through simple rules. It has applications in traffic flow modeling, structural design, neural networks, forest fires, ant colony activity, crystal growth and in many other fields. Cellular automaton models can be one, two or even three dimensional. They can be generated and explored through simulation and their outputs are very conducive for exploring real life crisis situations.
