Emergency applications have recently become widely available on modern smart phones. Nearly all of these commercial applications have focused on providing simple accident information in outdoor settings. AR in indoor environments poses unique challenges, due to the unavailability of GPS indoors and WiFi-based positioning limitations. In this paper, we propose the use of Rescue Me, a novel system based on indoor mobile AR applications using personalized pedometry and one that recommends the most optimal, uncrowded exit path to users. We have developed the Rescue Me application for use within large scale buildings, with complex paths. We show how Rescue Meleverages the sensors on a smart phone, in conjunction with emergency information and daily-based user behavior, to deliver evacuation information in emergency situations.
