Abstract

In this paper the fuzzy utility models approach is proposed in relation to route choice in a network in evacuation conditions. Fuzzy logic is introduced and the main advantages are presented: the key concept of possibility allows a better representation of human minds. As a consequence, better results may be obtained in relation to users’ behaviour representation. A possible application in evacuation conditions in a smart city is described.
