An empirical evaluation of a novel domain-specific language – modelling vehicle routing problems with Athos (2022)
Journal Article
Hoffmann, B., Urquhart, N., Chalmers, K., & Guckert, M. (2022). An empirical evaluation of a novel domain-specific language – modelling vehicle routing problems with Athos. Empirical Software Engineering, 27(7), Article 180. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10664-022-10210-w

Domain-specific languages (DSLs) are a popular approach among software engineers who demand for a tailored development interface. A DSL-based approach allows to encapsulate the intricacies of the target platform in transformations that turn DSL model...

Athos: An Extensible DSL for Model Driven Traffic and Transport Simulation (2020)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Hoffmann, B., Urquhart, N., Chalmers, K., & Guckert, M. (2020, February). Athos: An Extensible DSL for Model Driven Traffic and Transport Simulation. Presented at Modelling 2020, Vienna

Multi-agent systems may be considered appropriate tools for simulating complex systems such as those based around traffic and transportation networks. Modelling traffic participants as agents can reveal relevant patterns of traffic flow. Upsurging tr... Read More about Athos: An Extensible DSL for Model Driven Traffic and Transport Simulation.

Simulating Dynamic Vehicle Routing Problems with Athos (2019)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Hoffman, B., Guckert, M., Chalmers, K., & Urquhart, N. (2019, June). Simulating Dynamic Vehicle Routing Problems with Athos. Presented at ECMS2019: 33rd INTERNATIONAL ECMS CONFERENCE ON MODELLING AND SIMULATION, Napoli, Italy

Complex routing problems, such as vehicle routing problems with additional constraints, are both hard to solve and hard to express in a form that is accessible to the human expert and at the same time processible by a computer system that is supposed...

A Domain-Specific Language For Routing Problems (2018)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Hoffmann, B., Hoffman, B., Guckert, M., Farrenkopf, T., Chalmers, K., & Urquhart, N. (2018, May). A Domain-Specific Language For Routing Problems. Presented at 32nd Conference on Modelling and Simulation

Vehicle Routing Problems (VRPs) are commonly used as benchmark optimisation problems and they also have many applications in industry. Using agent-based approaches to solve VRPs allows the analysis of dynamic VRP instances that incorporate congestion... Read More about A Domain-Specific Language For Routing Problems.
