Symposium On Theory of Modeling and Simulation - DEVS Integrative M&S Symposium (TMS/DEVS 2011)
Boston, MA, USA, April 4-9, 2011


We introduce a method to integrate Cell-DEVS models with DEVS-based robotic agents and an advanced Immersive en-vironment for Emergency Management. The emergency is handled by an autonomous robot controlled by a real-time DEVS model. The model controlling the robot interacts with a simulation for emergencies, receiving real-time data about its location on a cell space. The immersive environ-ment is used to visualize the emergency and its manage-ment. The simulation results of both the cell-DEVS emer-gency model and the DEVS-based robotic first responder are visualized dynamically at real-time. The goal is to show how to integrate cellular modeling in a real-time platform and the DEVS formal framework as a collaboration mecha-nism. The real-time visualization allows for supervisory control of the emergency and first responders activities.
