Abstract:

A method for determining instructions for navigating a human in an emergency, includes detecting an initial position of the human, detecting an initial position of a hazard causing the emergency, maintaining a probabilistic model for a propagation of the hazard, maintaining a probabilistic model for a motion of the human, determining instructions for the human to move from the present position to a target space assumed to be safe for the human in view of the hazard dependent on at least the initial position of the hazard, the initial position of the human, the probabilistic model for the hazard, the probabilistic model for the human, and the target space, and transmitting the instructions to the human.
