Situation Management: Basic Concepts and Approaches

An approach to situation management based on multi-agent systems, event correlation and case-based reasoning is discussed, including Situation Calculus, Situation Semantics, Situation Control, Situation Awareness and others.

Towards a distributed situation management capability for SESAR and NextGen

The results obtained indicate that automated support for situation management in aviation security is feasible and capable of supporting distributed information sharing and early identification of incidents and that this capability will not place additional constraints on the future ATM System.

Communal Cooperation in Sensor Networks for Situation Management

This work presents an approach for massively deployed sensor networks that does not rely on centralized control but is founded in lessons learned from the way biological ecosystems are organized, and exemplifies the robust, fault-tolerant infrastructure required for successful situation management systems.

Towards template-based situation recognition

The paper provides a categorization of approaches for situation recognition together with a formalization of the template-based situation recognition problem and discusses this formalization in the light of a pick-pocket scenario.

Biology-inspired Architecture for Situation Management

Situation management is a rapidly developing science combining new techniques for data collection with advanced methods of data fusion to facilitate the process leading to correct decisions

Reflective Situation Management

This paper describes how variability in the sensing infrastructure can lead to erroneous situation identification and proposes the use of infrastructure situations to capture the context by which other situations and their evidence are referenced.

Situation management [Guest editorial]

Many domains, such as physical infrastructure and cyber security monitoring, battlefield operations management, disaster response and crisis management, and homeland security, are characterized by

ActiveEdge embeds cognitive intelligence for achieving a high degree of automation, effective information management, and near real-time situational reasoning in order to augment the power of grid computing.

Combining multiple autonomous mobile sensor behaviors using local clustering

This work describes a new approach which enables several different behaviors to be combined, utilizing the best behavior for any particular inter-robot range, and demonstrates this method using computer model simulations.

Automatic event recognition for enhanced situational awareness in UAV video

  • R. Higgins
  • Computer Science

Research is being done on the recognition of events that occur in UAV video and some of the initial results of that research are described, including testing with a limited event recognition catalog.

Maritime situation monitoring and awareness using learning mechanisms

This paper addresses maritime situation awareness by using cognitively inspired algorithms to learn behavioral patterns at a variety of conceptual, spatial, and temporal levels and combines two components: an unsupervised clustering algorithm, and a supervised mapping and labeling algorithm.

KSNet-approach application to knowledge-driven evacuation operation management

The paper discusses the basic elements of the KSNet-approach, including the service-oriented architecture, problem decomposition into elementary subtasks, and application of contexts for situation description, illustrated by a case study of an evacuation operation management.

Situation management in crisis scenarios based on self-organizing neural mapping technology

The approach transforms Ars Cognita's existing self-organizing neural mapping technology from a passive knowledge acquisition and delivery system to an active system that can predict outcomes based upon the relationships inherent in its collected knowledge.

Battlespace situation analysis: the dynamic CBR approach

A novel approach for analysis of battlespace situations based on dynamic cases is proposed that integrates two core technologies developed earlier by the authors: real-time temporal event correlation (EC) and case-based reasoning (CBR).

A core ontology for situation awareness

An explanation of the meaning of this ontology, its expressiveness and its extensibility are provided, and it is shown how the ontology can be adapted to handle domain-specific situations by readily extending the core language.

Target tracking with distributed robotic macrosensors

A novel control mechanism that deploys a large number of inexpensive robots as a distributed remote sensing array, called a distributed robotic macrosensor (DRM), which has the capability to track targets of both a discrete and diffuse nature.

Effects based decision support for riot control: employing influence diagrams and embedded simulation

This work describes, conceptually, how influence diagrams and different embedded simulation techniques need to be applied in order to implement this functionality and gives an example of how the suggested approach will appear from an operational point of view.
