Every public space such as schools, cinemas, shopping malls, etc. must have the emergency evacuation system and are required to follow regulations and protocols for emergency evacuation to assure the safety of people inside from any unpredictable incident. For two decades, companies/organizations are using simulation models/software for evacuation planning. Researchers are working on these software’s to improve the efficiency using latest algorithms. This thesis focuses on creating a base model of evacuation systems for 3D indoor environment to simulate physical changes such as retractable chairs, movable walls etc., to evaluate their effectiveness before committing to the proposed changes. This research tries to address various flaws and shortcomings of previous software. We are using tools like Unity 3D and Autodesk Maya to simulate suggested changes. It will give planners/engineers as well as researchers a new perspective to work on new recommended physical changes to public venues.
