Abstract

An experiment carried out on stated preferences (SP) data highlights the role of the informer in the user choice process during evacuation conditions. Starting from the SP data, in this paper we propose a prototypal experimentation of choice models simulating the choice to evacuate or not in different evacuation conditions: calibrated models focus on the role of the informer that determine different responses of users, given a particular kind of dangerous event.
