Agents and Simulated Reality (ASR)

The research department Agents and Simulated Reality (ASR) conducts research in the areas visual computing, multi-agent systems and formal methods for safe and secure systems in the context of interactive 3D simulations and visualizations as well as other applications. Using Simulated Reality, real-world scenarios can be accurately depicted and predictions about their behavior can be made. Research in ASR allows for visualizing and simulating complex scenarios, such as industrial production lines, cities, or even biological cells. Semantic information is tightly integrated with the models and provides the context for the simulations and visualizations. Highly optimized software platforms for multi- and many-core systems enable physically-correct representations as well as direct interaction with complex 3D simulations. A special focus is on Web-based solutions directly in HTML-5 using our XML3D technology to guarantee a universal access and wide distribution.

Simulated Reality allows for accurately reproducing real world scenarios in the computer and making predictions about their behavior. Today, reliable predictions of the development and the behavior of complex systems are essential for the planning, development and operation of industrial plants, in production, trade, automotive and aerospace industries, as well as many other areas. The DFKI research department “Agents and Simulated Reality (ASR)” combines competencies from the core fields of Visual Computing and Artificial Intelligence, particularly in multi-agent systems and formal methods for safe and secure systems.
