Contents:
Part I : Introduction and literature reviews -- The Socionical FP7 Project and an outline of the volume -- Enhancing Crowd Evacuation & Traffic Management, through AmI technologies - A Review of the Literature --  A The Concept of ‘Co-evolution’ and its Application in the Social Sciences – A Review of the literature -- Part II: EMERGENCY -- Using mobile technology and a participatory sensing approach for crowd monitoring during large-scale mass gatherings -- Agent-based Modelling of Social Emotional Decision Making in Emergency Situations,- Designing Complex Socio-technical Systems: Empirically Grounded Simulations as Tools for Experience-based Design Space Explorations -- Part III:  TRANSPORT -- Enhancing Future Mass ICT with Social Capabilities -- Emerging Phenomena During Driving Interactions -- Effective Assessment of AmI Intervention in Traffic Through Quantitative Measures -- Part IV: CITY SCALE -- City Scale Evacuation Simulation: A High-Performance Multi-Agent Simulation Framework.
In: Springer eBooksSummary: As the interconnectivity between humans through technical devices is becoming ubiquitous, the next step is already in the making: ambient intelligence, i.e. smart (technical) environments, which will eventually play the same active role in communication as the human players, leading to a co-evolution in all domains where real-time communication is essential. This topical volume, based on the findings of the Socionical European research project, gives equal attention to two highly relevant domains of applications: transport, specifically traffic, dynamics from the viewpoint of a socio-technical interaction and evacuation scenarios for large-scale emergency situations. Care was taken to investigate as much as possible the limits of scalability and to combine the modeling using complex systems science approaches with relevant data analysis.
