Abstract:

In this paper, we propose a scenario-specific human mobility model (TP-D) in theme parks. We focus on the disaster scenarios which have significant differences compared to the ordinary mobility behavior of the theme park visitors. The main goal of the theme park operation in disaster scenarios is the evacuation of the visitors from the disaster areas. We first model theme park as a combination of roads, obstacles, lands, and disaster events. We use real theme park maps for generating the theme park models. We incorporate the macro and micro mobility behaviors of the visitors in theme park models. We use the social force concept to model the impact of social interactions on the micro mobility of the visitors. Macro mobility decisions are based on the local knowledge of the visitors, the waypoints, and the disaster events. We analyze and compare the results of the simulation of our model with simulations of currently used models and real-world GPS traces of visitor movement.
