  • Interoperability, Composability, and Their Implications for Distributed Simulation: Towards Mathematical Foundations of Simulation Interoperability

    Interoperability is generally defined as the ability to exchange data and to make use of these data within the receiving system. For information technology systems this definition makes perfect sense, as the exchange of data via common protocols in a shared infrastructure is the only way to make systems work with each other. For simulation systems, however, the exchange and use of data is necessar... View full abstract»

  • Agents in a Federated World

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (380 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Summary form only given. Any application operating in a distributed environment must be designed to allow for a number of idiosyncrasies including autonomy, asynchronous processing, and multiple organisational entities. The latter aspect, also known as federation, poses additional challenges such as lacking overall centralised control and/or authorities. In our work at Thales Research & Techno...

  • Logisim to DEVS Translation

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):13 - 20
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (522 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We propose a transformation from digital logic circuits modelled in the Logisim modelling language (and tool) to behaviourally equivalent models in the Discrete-EVent System specification (DEVS) formalism. This is achieved by mapping each Logisim component to a corresponding atomic DEVS model and by preserving the component coupling. The challenge in this work is the faithful preservation of all d...

    This paper shall give an insight into a novel idea of distributed agent based discrete event simulation. Instead of distributing work packages over different nodes of an high performance cluster, the simulation workload is distributed all over the Internet and the calculation is done in the JavaScript rendering engine on off-the-shelf computers, smart phones and other Internet connected devices ca...

    Cyber-physical systems (CPS) involve communication networks, computation algorithms, control systems and physical systems. Many CPS, such as Smart Buildings, are subject to very expensive deployment costs and complex network interactions. Thus comprehensive modeling and simulation of such systems are crucial to ensure that they function as intended before deployment. Given the multi-domain nature ... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):41 - 46
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (570 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Coverage optimization is a fundamental problem in Directional Sensor Networks (DSNs). Apart from solutions for omni-directional sensor nodes, more intelligent algorithms are required for this unique and non-trivial problem. In recent years, several centralized and decentralized methods were introduced to improve the coverage in randomly deployed DSNs. A thorough review reveals that the performance...

  • Service Abstractions With Fault Virtualization for Distributed Network Infrastructures

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (503 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The paper deals with service abstractions that allow managing the dependability features of networked application systems.Component-level faults in the infrastructure are mapped on to degradations in the service quality space. Fault recovery mechanisms in a service-layer algorithm, if any, purport to maintain either the same level of service as in the no-fault case or a reduced level of service pr... View full abstract»

  • Distributed Simulation of Heterogeneous and Real-Time Systems

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1323 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This work describes a framework for distributed simulation of cyber-physical systems (CPS). Modern CPS comprise large numbers of heterogeneous components, typically designed in very different tools and languages that are not or not easily compose able. Evaluating such large systems requires tools that integrate all components in a systematic, well-defined manner. This work leverages existing frame... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5151 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Quality of user experience in Distributed Interactive Applications(DIAs) highly depends on the network latencies during the system execution. In DIAs, each user is assigned to a server and communication with any other client is performed through its assigned server. Hence, latency measured between two clients, called interaction time, consists of two components. One is the latency between the clie... View full abstract»

    Energy consumption of computing systems and especially of large-scale systems has a growing concern nowadays due to economic and ecological reasons. To reduce energy consumption, a variety of mechanisms are proposed in the literature. One of them is Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS). Many systems impose energy consumption restrictions when tasks are executed. We propose an energy saving mechanism base... View full abstract»

    More and more drivers use on-board units to help them navigate in the increasing urbanised environment they live and work in. These system (e.g., routing applications on smart phones) are now very often on-line, and use information from the traffic situation (e.g., accidents, congestion) to get the best route. We can now envisage a world where all trips are assigned and updated by such an on-line ... View full abstract»

    A system that is highly dependable under hostile conditions but whose dependability cannot be easily evaluated prior to the deployment of applications is less desirable than a system with lower but predictable dependability. This is because a decision-making on the deployment of high assurance systems is often based on a risk analysis of application failures. For systems implemented on a cloud, th... View full abstract»

    Simulation modeling is a significant tool for systems analysis that is being used in industry and services for several years. As the world becomes more connected, organizations complexity increases and traditional simulation techniques often are inadequate to represent modern problems. Moreover, simulation building requires high-skilled modelers and experimentation with large-scale simulations is ... View full abstract»

    In this paper we present DIVAs 4.0, a framework that supports the development of large-scale agent-based simulation systems where agents are situated in open environments. DIVAs includes high-level abstractions for the definition of agents and open environments, a micro kernel for the management of the simulation workflow, domain-specific libraries for the rapid development of simulations, and reu...

    In the field of policy modeling, a trend to growing complexity and complication of simulation models can be observed. One of the reasons for this development is the fact that for many policy cases of practical interest there are no theories available from which "simple" simulation models could be derived. Instead a sometimes vast amount of information-scenarios describing stakeholders views, docum... View full abstract»
