This paper describes a decentralized and adaptive evacuation routing system. This system consists of a network of communicating sensors and actuators that dynamically guide evacuees towards the nearest exit. The approach makes use of self-organizing gradient following mechanisms that are inspired by biological pattern formation processes.
