This type of information could 7.25 Intelligent Egress Systems be extremely helpful to tunnel owners and operators faced Using the current computer modeling technology available with the decision of how best to allocate limited money to in the egress area (e.g., Simulex), researchers could try to select countermeasures to increase the safety and security of develop intelligent egress systems. their facilities.
