OTC Evacuation Route Planning and Large Event Transportation Software

  1. 1. Evacuation Route Planning and Large  Event Transportation Software Andrew MorrowAndrew Morrow November 10, 2010 The data in this presentation is representative of theThe data in this presentation is representative of the  information known at the time of printing  (11/11/2010) and should be confirmed by the UMN  Technology Marketing Manager.
  2. 2. Office for Technology Commercialization 19 Why Evacuation Routing? • Sudden, massive traffic creates hazard concerns • Cities, events, office buildings, and hazardous facilities are federally mandated to have an evacuation plan on record • An efficient “what-if?” system is not currently available
  3. 3. Office for Technology Commercialization 20 Evacuation Routing Issues • Catastrophic events require immediate strategic action. • Planning and real-time evacuation action for highly- specific locations is not currently possible. • Dual-purpose solution for both planning and real-time scenarios would be valuable This is not a vehicle-based GPS
  4. 4. Office for Technology Commercialization 21 Evacuation Routing: Advantages • Laptop friendly and computationally efficient – multiple iterations are possible in “what-if” analysis • Dual-purpose solution for both planning and real-time scenarios • Scalable to any transportation network o Vehicular (roads) o Pedestrian (buildings and sidewalks) Today Using CCRP
  5. 5. Office for Technology Commercialization 22 Nuclear Power Plants in Minnesota Twin Cities Evacuation Routing for HAZMAT
  6. 6. Office for Technology Commercialization 23 Evacuation Routing: Handcrafted Evacuation Time: 268 Minutes
  7. 7. Office for Technology Commercialization 24 Evacuation Routing: Using CCRP - 40% improvement in routing time
  8. 8. Office for Technology Commercialization 25 Evacuation Routing: Markets • Homeland Security • Event Planning: Civil Engineering • Emergency Services: Fire, Police, Ambulance
  9. 9. Office for Technology Commercialization 26 Professor Shashi Shekhar McKnight Distinguished University University of Minnesota Research Focus: Interests include spatial databases, spatial data mining, geographic and information systems (GIS), and intelligent transportation systems. Evacuation Routing: Inventor
  10. 10. Office for Technology Commercialization 27 Evacuation Routing: Wrap-Up • New evacuation routing algorithm targeting city planners and homeland security. • Compatible with existing civil engineering software packages • Seeking a commercialization partner
