Abstract: The research provides a new way to simulate emergency evacuation in a large-scale environment based on multi-resolution modelling (MRM). The authors provide a parallel spatio-temporal model to synchronise and control two kinds of resolution models: the micro model based on multi-agent system (MAS) and particle swarm optimisation (PSO) algorithm, and the macro model based on a fluid dynamics model. With this approach, it is possible to apply distributed simulation to a large-scale emergency evacuation, while the individual behaviours at specific locations can be also presented.
