Showcase: Evacuation Simulation due to Bushfires

What happens in case of a bushfire in the Austrialia? How do people leave the endangered area, and what is the best way to do so? Using MATSim combined with BDI agent decision making, Lin Padgham, Professor in Artificial Intelligence at RMIT University in Melbourne, and Dhirendra Singh simulate the evacuation process due to bushfires in Austrialian communites. The results of those simulation processes are then visualized with Via.

Thanks to Lin Padgham and Dhirendra Singh for providing the movie and have a sneak peek at their work!
