Although various forms of symbiosis are known in biology, only mutualism has been considered in the context of symbiotic simulation systems. In this paper, we explain why the original definition of symbiotic simulation systems is narrow and why it is important to consider other forms of symbiosis as well. As a consequence we propose an extended definition(More)
Electro-mobility is widely regarded as the future of transportation systems. The shift from fossil fuel-based engines to electro-mobility will pose new challenges to the operations of future transportation systems. Our vision of a smart transportation system for the future entails a collaborative communication and simulation infrastructure that can help to(More)
An efficient simulation execution engine is crucial for agent-based traffic simulation. Depending on the size of the simulation scenario the execution engine would have to update several thousand agents during a single time step. This update may also include route calculations which are computationally expensive. The ability to dynamically recalculate the(More)
With a broader distribution of personal smart devices and with an increasing availability of advanced navigation tools, more drivers can have access to real time information regarding the traffic situation. Our research focuses on determining how using the real time information about a transportation system could influence the system itself. We developed an(More)
Semiconductor manufacturing is a highly complex and asset intensive process. Solutions are needed to automate control of equipment and improve efficiency. We describe a symbiotic simulation control system which uses reactive what-if analysis to find a stable configuration of a wet bench tool set. This control system is based on a generic framework for(More)
Symbiotic simulation is a paradigm in which a simulation system and a physical system are closely associated with each other. This close relationship can be mutually beneficial. The simulation system benefits from real-time measurements about the physical system which are provided by corresponding sensors. The physical system, on the other side, may benefit(More)
With the fast urbanization of our modern society, transportation systems in cities are facing increasing problems such as congestion, collisions, and high levels of emissions. Researchers have been searching for solutions by investigating better urban planning and transportation policies, introducing new technologies such as Intelligent Transportation(More)
Crowd behaviour is an interesting social phenomenon that emerges from complex interactions of individuals. An important aspect of individual behaviour is emotion which plays a significant role in all aspects of human decision making. For example, heightened emotional states can lead people to take highly unexpected or irrational actions. One popular(More)
Ridesharing offers the opportunity to make more efficient use of vehicles while preserving the benefits of individual mobility. Presenting ridesharing as a viable option for commuters, however, requires minimizing certain inconvenience factors. One of these factors includes detours which result from picking up and dropping off additional passengers. This(More)
A charging and dispatching strategy for optimizing profits from V2G is presented. This optimization strategy builds on temporally resolved electricity market data. A case study shows that this method turns a S$ 1000 annual loss into a S$ 130 profit. Sensitivity analyses indicate potential for further increase of profitability. Employing this strategy in(More)
