Adaptive Vehicle Routing for Evacuation under Uncertainty

The objective of this research project is to deliver a real-time, adaptive evacuation system for cascading events (e.g., hurricanes, following flooding, and following aftershocks). To realize this goal, the principal investigator (PI) will synthesize the existing information (e.g., flood inundation scenarios, human mobility information such as location-based social media data, U.S. Census Bureau data, past disaster statistics, and relevant weather and land conditions); establish theoretically proven experimental models; simulate evacuation plans using the synthesized data sets and models; and conceptualize and present a new approach. The adaptive evacuation transportation-planning model is anticipated to contribute to substantial improvement in understanding of natural or man-made hazards and mitigation of their effects. The target disaster type is flooding induced by hurricane and the target region is the New York City area, selected considering the potentially affected population size and the high frequency of hurricane occurrence in that region.
