Position Paper: The Usefulness of Data-driven, Intelligent Agent-Based Modelling for Transport Infrastructure Management (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Faboya, O., Patrocinio Figueredo, G., Ryan, B., & Siebers, P. (2018). Position Paper: The Usefulness of Data-driven, Intelligent Agent-Based Modelling for Transport Infrastructure Management. In The 21st IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systemsdoi:10.1109/ITSC.2018.8569946

The uneven utilisation of modes of transport has a big impact on traffic in transport pathway infrastrutures. For motor vehicles for instance, this situation explains rapid road deterioration and the large amounts of money invested in maintenance and...

An Artificial Intelligence Method for Comfort Level Prediction (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Masoud Sajjadian, S., Jafari, M., & Siebers, P. (2018). An Artificial Intelligence Method for Comfort Level Prediction. In KES-SEB 2018: Sustainability in Energy and Buildings 2018, 169-177. doi:10.1007/978-3-030-04293-6_17

With the rapid demand for the energy efficient consumption in buildings, bridging the gap between predicted and measured performance is essential. However, recent studies show that there is a significant mismatch between predicted and actual building... Read More about An Artificial Intelligence Method for Comfort Level Prediction.

An agent based modelling approach for the office space allocation problem (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Dediu, A., Landa-Silva, D., & Siebers, P. (2018). An agent based modelling approach for the office space allocation problem

This paper describes an agent based simulation model to create solutions for the office space allocation (OSA) problem. OSA is a combinatorial optimization problem concerned with the allocation of available office space to a set of entities such as p...

How do travellers decide: a stochastic modelling approach to determine decision factor significance (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Olusola, F. T., Siebers, O., Ryan, B., & Figueredo, G. P. (2018). How do travellers decide: a stochastic modelling approach to determine decision factor significance

Many factors are involved in travellers' mode choice decision processes. Such factors include individuals' physical, cognitive, and emotional abilities, which play a significant role in travellers' attitude and mode usage patterns. Understanding how...

Pure functional epidemics (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Thaler, J., Altenkirch, T., & Siebers, P. (2018). Pure functional epidemics. In IFL'18 Proceedings of 30th Symposium on Implementation and Application of Functional Languages, 5-7 September 2018, Lowell, Mass., USA, 1-12. doi:10.1145/3310232.3310372

Agent-Based Simulation (ABS) is a methodology in which a system is simulated in a bottom-up approach by modelling the micro interactions of its constituting parts, called agents, out of which the global system behaviour emerges. So far mainly object-... Read More about Pure functional epidemics.

A smart phone based multi-floor indoor positioning system for occupancy detection (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Mashuk, M. S., Pinchin, J., Siebers, P., & Moore, T. (in press). A smart phone based multi-floor indoor positioning system for occupancy detection

At present there is a lot of research being done simulating building environment with artificial agents and predicting energy usage and other building performance related factors that helps to promote understanding of more sustainable buildings. To u... Read More about A smart phone based multi-floor indoor positioning system for occupancy detection.

Proposal of a design pattern for embedding the concept of social forces in human centric simulation models (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Siebers, P., Deng, Y., Thaler, J., Schnädelbach, H., & Özcan, E. (2018). Proposal of a design pattern for embedding the concept of social forces in human centric simulation models. In A. Anagnostou, M. Fakhimi, R. Meskarian, & D. Robertson (Eds.), Proceedings of the Operational Research Society Simulation Workshop 2018 (SW18), 88-97

There exist many papers that explain the social force model and its application for modelling pedestrian dynamics. None of these papers, however, explains how to implement the social force model in order to use it for systems simulation studies. In t...
