Abstract

Emergency applications have recently become widely available on modern smartphones. Nearly all of these commercial applications have focused on providing simple accident information in outdoor settings. AR in indoor environments poses unique challenges, due to the unavailability of GPS indoors and WiFi-based positioning limitations. In this paper, we propose the use of RescueMe, a novel system based on indoor mobile AR applications using personalized pedometry and one that recommends the most optimal, uncrowded exit path to users. We have developed the RescueMe application for use within large-scale buildings, with complex paths. We show how RescueMe leverages the sensors on a smartphone, in conjunction with emergency information and daily-based user behavior, to deliver evacuation information in emergency situations.
