Abstract [en]

This paper explores the potential cannibalizing effects of introducing a flexible auction marketto the traditionally established market based on long-term contracts. By means of agent-based modellingand simulation based on an empirical case of a railway logistics service provider, we investigate thepotential effects of this new market on previously established customer contracts.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a framework in which satellite images are classified and augmented with additional semantic information to enable queries about what can be found on the map at a particular location, but also about paths that can be taken. This is achieved by a reasoning framework based on qualitative spatial reasoning that is able to find answers to high level queries that may vary on the current situation. This framework called SemCityMap, provides the full pipeline from enriching the raw image data with rudimentary labels to the integration of a knowledge representation and reasoning methods to user interfaces for high level querying. To illustrate the utility of SemCityMap in a disaster scenario, we use an urban environment—central Stockholm—in combination with a flood simulation. We show that the system provides useful answers to high-level queries also with respect to the current flood status. Examples of such queries concern path planning for vehicles or retrieval of safe regions such as “find all regions close to schools and far from the flooded area”. The particular advantage of our approach lies in the fact that ontological information and reasoning is explicitly integrated so that queries can be formulated in a natural way using concepts on appropriate level of abstraction, including additional constraints.

Abstract [en]

Over the last years, the affordance concept has attracted more and more attention in agent-based simulation. Due to its grounding in cognitive science, we assume that it may help a modeller to capture possible interactions in the modelling phase as it can be used to clearly state under which circumstances an agent might execute a particular action with a particular environmental entity.

In this discussion paper we clarify the concept of affordance and introduce a light-weight formalization of the notions in a way appropriate for agent-based simulation modelling. We debate its suitability for capturing interaction compared to other approaches.

Abstract [en]

In this paper we propose an ontology pattern that represents paths in a geo-representation model to be used in an aerial path planning processes. This pattern provides semantics related to constraints (i.e., ight forbidden zones) in a path planning problem in order to generate collision free paths. Our proposed approach has been applied on an ontology containing geo-regions extracted from satellite imagery data from a large urban city as an illustrative example.

Abstract [en]

Understanding and managing complex systems has become one of the biggest challenges for research, policy and industry. Modeling and simulationof complex systems promises to enable us to understand how a human nervous systemand brain not just maintain the activities of a metabolism, but enable the production of intelligent behavior, how huge ecosystems adapt to changes, or what actually influences climatic changes. Also man-made systems are getting more complex and difficult, or even impossible, to grasp. Therefore we need methods and tools that can help us in, for example, estimating how different infrastructure investments will affect the transport system and understanding the behavior of large Internet-based systems in different situations. This type of system is becoming the focus of research and sustainable management as there are now techniques, tools and the computational resources available. This chapter discusses modeling and simulation of such complex systems. We will start by discussing what characterizes complex systems.

Abstract [en]

In simulation projects, it is generally beneficial to have a toolset that allows following a more formal approach to system analysis, model design and model implementation. Such formal methods are developed to support a systematic approach by making different steps explicit as well as providing a precise language to express the results of those steps, documenting not just the final model but also intermediate steps. This chapter consists of two parts: the first gives an overview of which tools developed in software engineering can be and have been adapted to agent-based social simulation; the second part demonstrates with the help of an informative example how some of these tools can be combined into an overall structured approach to model development.

Abstract [en]

Electric Vehicle (EV) market penetration is expected to increase in the next few years. Transport electrification will affect both the road transport and the electric power network, as EV charging will be influenced by events that take place on the road network (such as congestion, weather, etc.) which subsequently have an impact on the potential load imposed on an electricity grid (based on where EV charging takes place). An EV is therefore seen as a link between transport and ener-gy systems, and their interdependencies are important. In this chapter an EV is mod-eled as an autonomous agent with a set of predefined high-level goals (such as trav-eling from origin to destination). Algorithms for the routing and charging proce-dures of EVs are presented. A multi-agent simulation is carried out, based on a number of scenarios, which demonstrates interactions between transport and energy systems, showing how an EV agent is able to adapt its behavior based on changes within each of these systems.

Abstract [en]

As technology for virtual reality becomes more and more accessible, virtual reality based training becomes a hot topic as an application environment for multiagent systems. In this contribution, we present a system that connects a game engine with a BDI platform for simulating a group of listeners that may be believable enough for serving as a virtual audience for training gestures and body language while teaching.

Abstract [en]

This paper depicts a sensor-based map navigation approach which targets users, who due to disabilities or lack of technical knowledge are currently not in the focus of map system developments for personalized information. What differentiates our approach from the state-of-art mostly integrating localized social media data, is that our vision is to integrate real time sensor generated data that indicates the situation of dfferent phenomena (such as the physiological functions of the body) related to the user. The challenge hereby is mainly related to knowledge representation and integration. The tentative impact of our vision for future navigation systems is re ected within a scenario.
