In this paper, we establish a meta-automata model for crowd evacuation in emergency situations, based on the narrowness of the passage, the noise and visibility of the passage, the psychological and physiological conditions of the passengers themselves and the size of the exit, and make a simulation study on the specific situation of crowd evacuation, and make suggestions on how to improve and enhance the evacuation efficiency. This paper analyzes the influence of relevant factors on crowd evacuation in emergency situations in a more comprehensive manner and gives the best strategy for crowd evacuation under different conditions, and after analysis and verification, the model of this paper is reasonable and of certain practical significance.
