Abstract
The purpose of the study was to investigate whether evacuating people can be directed by using red and green flashing lights. This was investigated by evacuation experiments in two different virtual environments conducted in the Virtual Reality Lab in Lund. The purpose of the first experiment was to examine whether people make the same choice of exits in Virtual Reality as in real evacuation experiments in simple environments with flashing lights. In the secound experiment subjects were faced with three different situations where they could choose between two exits with flashing lights in red or green. In the first experiment 30 subjects participated and the result showed that there was no significant difference between the real and... (More)

In the secound experiment subjects were faced with three different situations where they could choose between two exits with flashing lights in red or green. In the first experiment 30 subjects participated and the result showed that there was no significant difference between the real and virtual experiment. In the secound experiment 40 subjects participated and the results showed that 35 subjects consistent chose exits with green lights and that the exits with green lights were perceived as the most secure choice.
