What's the good of agent-based modelling?

Agent-based modelling (ABM) has grown enormously in popularity over the last decade. It seems to be applied nowadays to every topic one can imagine. In this talk, I shall first present what I see as the essence of ABM for those not familiar with this approach, and then review a number of examples, taken from the disciplines of computer science, ecology, sociology, economics, geography, and business, both to show how ABM can be applied and to identify appropriate and inappropriate uses.

On the Utility of Simulation in Autonomous and Assisted Driving


Developments in the scope of autonomous and assisted driving are innovative, safety critical and costly. Particularly, universitary institutes are dependent on simulations to get the foot into the door of vehicular research, in our case with special emphasis on commercial vehicles. To be a successful player in this application scope we designed a layered software architecture to support the seamless development from simulated to physical applications.
