The EXODUS suite of software represents a computer based laboratory for evaluating emergency and non-emergency movement and behaviour of people in aircraft, buildings and ships. EXODUS simulates people-people, people-fire and people-structure interactions.

It tracks the path of each individual as they make their way out of the enclosure, or are overcome by fire hazards such as heat, smoke and toxic gases. EXODUS allows a cost effective way to achieving safer and more functional designs, allowing designers and regulators to seek answers to questions that cannot be addressed using conventional approaches.

EXODUS enables difficult planning issues to be assessed in order to find the ideal design solution.
