    Coping with System Sustainability: A Sociocybernetics Framework for Social-Economic System Architecture2012In: Systems research and behavioral science, ISSN 1092-7026, E-ISSN 1099-1743, Vol. 29, no 3, p. 263-273Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes an epistemological model based on cybernetic principles and activity theory to interpret two levels of problems that are intertwined in our social-economic system, namely the liveability and sustainability problems. In the first part of the paper, important principles and concepts from related fields of cybernetics and activity theory are introduced for later construction of a model. In the second part, a model is constructed based on the introduced concepts. To validate the proposed model, the current economic crisis is studied in the third part. An important contribution of the proposed model is a theoretical understanding of the two levels problems, and how to construct macro social-economical policies to avoid similar crisis in the future.

    Freight transport prediction using electronic waybills and machine learning2014In: 2014 International Conference on Informative and Cybernetics for Computational Social Systems, IEEE Computer Society, 2014, p. 128-133Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A waybill is a document that accompanies the freight during transportation. The document contains essential information such as, origin and destination of the freight, involved actors, and the type of freight being transported. We believe, the information from a waybill, when presented in an electronic format, can be utilized for building knowledge about the freight movement. The knowledge may be helpful for decision makers, e.g., freight transport companies and public authorities. In this paper, the results from a study of a Swedish transport company are presented using order data from a customer ordering database, which is, to a larger extent, similar to the information present in paper waybills. We have used the order data for predicting the type of freight moving between a particular origin and destination. Additionally, we have evaluated a number of different machine learning algorithms based on their prediction performances. The evaluation was based on their weighted average true-positive and false-positive rate, weighted average area under the curve, and weighted average recall values. We conclude, from the results, that the data from a waybill, when available in an electronic format, can be used to improve knowledge about freight transport. Additionally, we conclude that among the algorithms IBk, SMO, and LMT, IBk performed better by predicting the highest number of classes with higher weighted average values for true-positive and false-positive, and recall.

    A Simulation Study of the Electronic Waybill Service2015In: Proceedings - EMS 2015: UKSim-AMSS 9th IEEE European Modelling Symposium on Computer Modelling and Simulation / [ed] David Al-Dabas, Gregorio Romero, Alessandra Orsoni, Athanasios Pantelous, IEEE Computer Society, 2015, p. 307-312Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We present results from a simulation study, whichwas designed for investigating the potential positive impacts, i.e., the invoicing and processing time, and financial savings,when using an electronic waybill instead of paper waybillsfor road-based freight transportation. The simulation modelis implemented in an experiment for three different scenarios,where the processing time for waybills at the freight loadingand unloading locations in a particular scenario differs fromother scenarios. The results indicate that a saving of 65%–99%in the invoicing time can be achieved when using an electronicwaybill instead of paper waybills. Our study can be helpful todecision makers, e.g., managers and staff dealing with paperwaybills, to estimate the potential benefits when making deci-sions concerning the implementation of an electronic waybillsolution for replacing paper waybills.

    Agent-Based Approaches to Transport Logistics2004Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper provides a survey of existing research on agent-based approaches to transportation and traffic management. A framework for describing and assessing this work will be presented and systematically applied. We are mainly adopting a logistical perspective, thus focusing on freight transportation. However, when relevant, work of traffic and transport of people will be considered. A general conclusion from our study is that agent-based approaches seem very suitable for this domain, but that this still needs be verified by more deployed system.

    Multi-Agent Container Terminal Management2006Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis describes research concerning the application of multi-agent based simulation for evaluating container terminal management operations. The growth of containerization, i.e., transporting goods in a container, has created problems for ports and container terminals. For instance, many container terminals are reaching their capacity limits and increasingly leading to traffic and port congestion. Container terminal managers have several, often conflicting goals, such as serve a container ship as fast as possible while minimizing terminal equipment costs The focus of the research involves the performance from the container terminal manager’s perspective and how to improve the understanding of the factors of productivity and how they are related to each other. The need to manage complex systems such as container terminals requires new ways for finding solutions, e.g., by applying novel methods and technologies. The approach taken in this thesis is to model the decision makers involved in the container terminal operations and various types of terminal equipment, e.g., cranes, transporters, etc., as software agents. The general question addressed in this work is: can the performance of a container terminal be improved by using agent-based technologies? In order to evaluate the multi-agent based systems approach, a simulation tool, called SimPort, was developed for evaluating container terminal management policies. The methods for modelling the entities in a container terminal are presented along with the simulation experiments conducted. The results indicate that certain policies can yield faster ship turn-around times and that certain stacking policies can lead to improved productivity. Moreover, a multi-agent based simulation approach is used to evaluate a new type of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) using a cassette system, and compare it to a traditional AGV system. The results suggest that the cassette-based system is more cost efficient than a traditional AGV system in certain configurations. Finally, an agent-based approach is investigated for evaluating the governance structure of the stakeholders involved in a transport corridor. The results of the research indicate that the performance of a container terminal can be improved by using agent-based technologies. This conclusion is based upon several studies, both conceptual and concrete simulation experiments. In particular, multi-agent based simulation seems to offer container terminal management a suitable tool to control, coordinate, design, evaluate and improve productivity.

    Agent based simulation architecture for evaluating operational policies in transshipping containers2009In: AUTONOMOUS AGENTS AND MULTI-AGENT SYSTEMS, Springer , 2009, Vol. 18, no 2, p. 220-238Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An agent based simulator for evaluating operational policies in the transshipment of containers in a container terminal is described. The simulation tool, called SimPort, is a decentralized approach to simulating managers and entities in a container terminal. Real data from two container terminals are used as input for evaluating eight transshipment policies. The policies concern the sequencing of ships, berth allocation, and stacking rule. They are evaluated with respect to a number of aspects, such as, turn-around time for ships and traveled distance of straddle carriers. The simulation results indicate that a good choice in yard stacking and berthing position policies can lead to faster ship turn-around times. For instance, in the terminal studied the Overall-Time-Shortening policy offers fast turn-around times when combined with a Shortest-Job-First sequencing of arriving ships.

    Evaluation of Automated Guided Vehicle Systems for Container Terminals Using Multi Agent Based Simulation2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Due to globalization and the growth of international trade, many container terminals are trying to improve performance in order to keep up with demand. One technology that has been proposed is the use of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) in the handling of containers within terminals. Recently, a new generation of AGVs has been developed which makes use of cassettes that can be detached from the AGV. We have developed an agent-based simulator for evaluating the cassette-based system and comparing it to a more traditional AGV system. In addition, a number of different configurations of container terminal equipment, e.g., number of AGVs and cassettes, have been studied in order to find the most efficient configuration. The simulation results suggest that there are configurations in which the cassette-based system is more cost efficient than a traditional AGV system, as well as confirming that multi agent based simulation is a promising approach to this type of applications.

    Using Simulation in Evaluating Berth Allocation at a Container Terminal2004Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The operations and decision making at a container terminal have been simulated. A Berth Allocation Management System – (BAMS) has been built which consists of two parts: a container terminal simulator modelling the operations and a management simulator modelling the various actors involved in the allocation of container ships to berths. Together these two parts generate berth schedules for arriving container ships. Two berth assignment policies are evaluated in different scenarios, with various quay lengths, berth spacing lengths, and ship arrival sequences. The decisions in assigning ships with different loading and discharging demands to a limited amount of resources, such as berth space and cranes are analysed with the BAMS. The berths at the container terminal are modelled by the BAMS to be dynamic in the sense that berth segmentation is based on the current situation rather than being static. The policies are evaluated in terms of turn-around time and distance travelled by the straddle carriers. The simulation results indicate that an informed choice of berth assignment policy can provide better use of the available resources, e.g., by reducing turnaround time and/or distance travelled by the straddle carriers.

    Tools for faster turn-around times in RoRo terminals: Case sudies from Europe: Karlshamn-Klaipeda short sea shipping link2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to develop an optimization model that can select handling equipment and ships from a strategic level. This model can help when investing in systems for handling unitized cargo at port terminals in the context of Short Sea Shipping (SSS). Initial model results indicate that a LoLo vessel with a capacity between (500 and 1000 TEU) capable of completing a SSS voyage, when handling is completed in 48 hours will be less costly than a RoRo, which may have multiple voyages for TEU volumes greater than 1000.

    Abstract [en]

    The multi-agent system (MAS) approach which offers suitable means of control, coordination and management in container terminal domain is discussed. The transport providers and actors can improve individual performance and service by sharing information with introduction of 'information society' to logistics chains. The actors involved in physical and information flows are mapped with agents who have abilities to search, coordinate, communicate and negotiate with other agents in order to complete the specified gaol in MAS approach. The information society members benefits from information sharing with use of multi-agents.

    Virtual Robotic Arm Control with Hand Gesture Recognition and Deep Learning Strategies2017In: Advances in Parallel Computing, ISSN 0927-5452, E-ISSN 1879-808X, Vol. 31, p. 50-67Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Hand gestures and Deep Learning Strategies can be used to control a virtual robotic arm for real-time applications. A robotic arm which is portable to carry various places and which can be easily programmed to do any work of a hand and is controlled by using deep learning techniques. Deep hand is a combination of both virtual reality and deep learning techniques. It estimated the active spatio-temporal feature and the corresponding pose parameter for various hand movements, to determine the unknown pose parameter of hand gestures by using various deep learning algorithms. A novel framework for hand gestures has been made to estimate by using a deep convolution neural network (CNN) and a deep belief network (DBN). A comparison in terms of accuracy and recognition rate has been drawn. This helps in analyzing the movement of a hand and its fingers which can be made to control a robotic arm with high recognition rate and less error rate. © 2017 The authors and IOS Press.

    Optimization modelling of LNG supply chains for development: Case study of Lithuania and Latvia2017In: Transport Means - Proceedings of the International Conference, Kaunas University of Technology , 2017, p. 762-765Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The increasing demand for Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) is causing many challenges for users and suppliers worldwide. Though there is strong interest in using LNG, the research published in this paper indicates there are challenges in developing adequate delivery and distribution chains within the supply chain. Ideally, LNG distribution chains should be created on the basis of user demands and need. In this paper we have articulated an optimisation model that considers the various potential users and their characteristics in order to identify if possibilities and prospects exist in developing an adequate LNG supply chain. The case study of Lithuania and Latvia serves as a model from which we are able to use our tool to help identify the factors for success in creating such LNG supply chains. © 2017 Kaunas University of Technology.
