I don't know if anyone has suggested this before and if so could someone give me a link to that discussion. But anyways I've noticed the flow of traffic in my prison is a bit hmm messy and deadly and I was thinking isn't there a way to make a one way door to help guide the prisons around in a more orderly and hopefully safer fashion?

That's easy:
pressure plate on the side you want to open > door servo > remote door.
But it might result in people waiting for ages on the side of the door which hasn't got a pressure plate...

I like the fact that you said it's easy and even backed it with some simple ideas and the fact that you knowledge the flaw that people would be waiting on the other side thus backing up the hold system and destroying the value of the one way door.

Haha, yeah this is a good choice if the room they are going into is also one they will never need to leave again. I was thinking you could just make another separate one way door for leaving, but whats to allow the AI to decide which door to use without specialty "one way door" objects to create smart paths.
