Abstract: A realistic rescue simulation method with consideration of road network restrictions is proposed. Decision making and emergency communication system play important roles in rescue process when emergency situations happen. The rescue process will be more effective if we have appropriate decision making method and accessible emergency communication system. In this paper, we propose centralized rescue model for people with disabilities. The decision making method to decide which volunteers should help which disabled persons is proposed by utilizing the auction mechanism. The GIS data are used to present the objects in a large-scale disaster simulation environment such as roads, buildings, and humans. The Gama simulation platform is used to test our proposed rescue simulation model. There are road network restrictions, road disconnections, one way traffic, roads which do not allow U-Turn, etc. These road network restrictions are taken into account in the proposed rescue simulation model. The experimental results show around 10% of additional time is required for evacuation of victims.
