Abstract
This report employ surveys and evacuation experiments to examine how various acoustic and optical signals attract peoples attention. The purpose of the study was to be the basis for a new Swedish standard regarding evacution signals. Initially a literature study were performed. Acoustic and optical signals were selected from the study. These signals were tested in a survey where the participants assessed how well the signals could attract their
attention. The three signals with the highest rating were used in evacuation experiments.
These conclusions were made in the report: An acoustic signal should be continous, vary between at least two frequencies, have a pulse rate of at least 1 Hz and be within the frequency range 800-1000 Hz. An... (More)

These conclusions were made in the report: An acoustic signal should be continous, vary between at least two frequencies, have a pulse rate of at least 1 Hz and be within the frequency range 800-1000 Hz. An optical signal should consist of a red light. It does not have to alternate between red and white light. (Less)
