Abstract—This paper considers the problem faced by a group
of evacuees must leave from an affected area as quickly as
possible. We seek efficient tactics that achieve a bounded ratio
of evacuation time without boundary information to that with.
Specially, evacuees can communicate with each other during
In this paper, we restrict the affected area to a convex region
in the plane. We analyze this problem in two scenarios: general
plane and plane in grid network. In these two scenarios, we
present new efficient tactics and analyze the evacuate ratio of
