Abstract: We propose a system that supports evacuation after a large-scale disaster. When a large-scale disaster occurs, collecting information by using portable devices is difficult, because communication base stations collapse and traffic congestion occurs. Evacuees are at a loss where they should go for safe places in lack of information. In order to overcome these problems, we have proposed and evaluated a multi-agent system that is built on MANET. Our aim is to let the users share information on MANET, and provide safe routes to the destination by using collected information. In the previous paper, we proposed and implemented the main functions of the proposed system, and performed feasibility study of the multi-agent system by using simple simulator. In this paper, we report the revised system and investigate the relationships between the number of the users and diffusivity of information, and the number of the generated mobile agents by using newly constructed simulator. In the experimen ts for evaluation, we simulated a realistic situation by using real map data and we took stochastic change of the situation into consideration, because the situation must be getting worse by time elapses.
