Abstract

Active evacuation guidance using a sensor agent is explored. The sensor agent robot is equipped with a high precision servo-accelerometer with a uplifting mechanism for axles to ensure accurate measurement of floor response. The story drift angle is estimated from the acceleration data obtained by the sensor agent robot to decide whether evacuation is needed or not. This sensor agent robot is used for services in the living space in a normal situation. Thus, the evacuation system can be economical and feasible as the system for this evacuation added to the robot is small.
