The disasters can never be predicted such as huge earthquakes. The collapse of buildings will cause the heavy casualties; moreover, the aftershocks force helpless people to take refuge in empty places.

According to the anthropology behavioral studies on pedestrian walking, people follow lines and floor tiles subconsciously; therefore, this design integrates the piezoelectric effect technology and the said behavior to set signs on the surface of tiles aiming to guide the evacuation out of electricity in earthquakes.
