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)
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)
Large-scale urban systems simulations are complex and with a large number of active simulation entities the computational workload is extensive. Workstation computers have only limited capabilities of delivering results for large-scale simulations. This leads to the problem that many researchers and engineers have to either reduce the scope of their(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)
With the increasing growth of manufacture networks as well as the global competition in the lubricant industry, efficient management of a supply chain is vital for large vertically-integrated petroleum companies. Operational decision-making should consider the entire supply chain which includes upstream raw material suppliers, down-stream customers, as well(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)
An efficient simulation execution engine is crucial for agentbased 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 re-calculate the(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)
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)
