Abstract Smart Roads are systems that are changing road traffic through the use of information in real time. They use sensor and actuator networks deployed on people and the surrounding environment. Such networks are complex systems with distributed configurations. This issue causes difficulties in their development and configuration. To alleviate these problems, simulations become a key tool. They provide controlled environments to develop and test components. However, the use of simulations ha...
Shared spaces are gaining presence in cities, where a variety of players and mobility types (pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles, and cars) move without specifically delimited areas. This makes the traffic they comprise challenging for automated systems. The information traditionally considered (e.g., streets, and obstacle positions and speeds) is not enough to build suitable models of the environment. The required explanatory and anticipation capabilities need additional information to improve t...

Smart Environments (SEs) work in close interaction with their users. To perform properly, these systems need to process their information (both from sensing and to act) considering its meaning for people. For instance, when they manage workflows that represent users’ activities or consider the tradeoffs between alternative actions. Introducing social knowledge about the human context helps SEs to better interpret information, and thus people’ needs and actions. However, working with this knowled...

City traffic is getting more multi-modal, with a variety of actors and mobility options in mixed spaces. This makes decisions on traffic behaviour and control more complex. Beyond traditionally considered aspects (e.g. traffic state or used vehicle), human aspects (e.g. physical state, displacement goal, or companion), gain increasing relevance. They can greatly modify how people move and interact with others. Introducing social knowledge about human behaviour and context can help to better unde...

Learning activities make use today of a variety of software tools, like Learning Management Systems (LMSs), online social networks, and forums. They enhance the experience by facilitating interactions among participants and with resources. These interactions can be used as a source of information on how the process is working for individual students or groups, and therefore to provide them a tailored support. However, lecturers can only do this monitoring in very simple ways, as their time is li...

Learning activities use an increasing number of software tools. These mediate the interactions among participants and of these with resources like documents and tools. These tools constitute a valuable source of information about the actual learning processes. However, this use faces multiple problems. Lecturers need to gain expertise on the data each tool provides and how to analyse them, each tool only offers a partial view of the process, students have different profiles and use different too...

Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) pursues providing an autonomous and satisfactory life to people through technology, independently of their actual conditions. Its developments usually require testing protoypes with real users in Living Labs (LL). This makes projects expensive. Virtual LLs (VLLs) try to address theses issues by using simulations for requirements elicitation and the initial testing of solutions. These simulations frequently require considering social aspects, e.g. relationships, cult...

Today, it is common for software projects to collect measurement data through development processes. With these data, defect prediction software can try to estimate the defect proneness of a software module, with the objective of assisting and guiding software practitioners. With timely and accurate defect predictions, practitioners can focus their limited testing resources on higher risk areas. This paper reports a benchmarking study that uses a genetic algorithm that automatically generates an...

Agent-based modelling is becoming widely used for studies in Social Sciences. However, its application faces limitations coming from its bias to software development, which precludes a more active involvement of social researchers. In order to deal with this problem, this work proposes using domain-specific modelling languages based on the socio-psychological Activity Theory. These languages apply agent research to crystallize that theoretical framework in a formal definition suitable for automa...
