In this paper a new potential field approach is suggested for the evasive navigation of an agent that is engaging multiple pursuers in a stationary environment. Here, the gradient of a potential field that is generated by solving the Poisson equation subject to a set of mixed boundary conditions is used to generate a sequence of directions to guide the motion of an evader in order to escape a group of pursuers while avoiding a set of forbidden regions (clutter). The focus here is on continuous evasion where the agent does not have the benefit of a target zone (e.g., a shelter), which upon reaching it can discontinue engaging the pursuers. The capabilities of the approach are demonstrated using simulation experiments.
