Abstract:

Imagine we need to quantify the ease of access of the population to public infrastructures. One possible solution is to calculate every distance and analyze which percentage of the population is in less than 300 meters. However, this solution does not take into account issues such as: the age distribution; functional diversity; people’s preferences when transiting the city; or the traffic situation. It is in these cases when it is necessary to go a step further and integrate GIS with other perspectives such as Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) which represent the particular characteristics of each individual and their decision making processes. MAS are composed of intelligent and independent agents able to perceive their environment and interact with it in a rational manner emulating the behavior of a certain entity. This integration of GIS and SMA is known as geosimulation and builds more accurate simulations to model the physical reality together with social, demographic and economic components. Furthermore, by connecting these geosimulations to the real world by sensors and actuators, the concept of mixed reality arises; simulations where changes in the real world are transferred to the virtual world through sensors and agents can influence the real world through actuators. Mixed realities allow developing distributed control systems, which not only take into account the physical reality and social preferences but also the state, where to deploy intelligent agents that provide services to citizens. In this paper we present three examples of geosimulations we are working on today: the prediction of urban development, estimating the carbon footprint of traffic in a territory and service optimization for municipal waste collection. <br> <br> The presentation can be found at the following link: <a href="http://bibstream.udg.edu/streaming/3760.mp4">http://bibstream.udg.edu/streaming/3760.mp4</a>
