Abstract
This thesis makes a review of existing algorithms and methods for route choice. Algorithms and methods already implemented in fire evacuation simulators are examined, as well as those that are implemented in computer games, traffic models or theoretical models that are to date not implemented at all. An analysis is made to get an overview of their strengths and limitations to be able to determine which seem promising to develop further. This thesis has an extra focus on factors affecting route choice and their implementation in evacuation models. Factors found in literature are summarized. Furthermore, a series of 8 tests for verification of factors affecting route choice in evacuation simulators are suggested.
