Collaborative Simulation System with SNS Portal

managed by Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology


Researchers wishing to share simulation models are unable to do so unless they have access to the same computing environment. Even when access to computational facilities can be arranged, there are often bureaucratic barriers to be overcome delaying research.
The solution is a general system for simulation, which leverages social media providing a means to submit models, receive progress reports and simulation output. This facilitates collaboration from external researchers and makes it easy to interact with the system with only a mobile phone.

Readiness Level (TRL)

system prototype demonstration in operational environment
"Multilevel Modelling of Physiological Systems implemented as Proof of Concept"
(The pie chart refers to the entire portfolio contained in the database of the helpdesk)

Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) are a method of estimating technology maturity of Critical Technology Elements (CTE) of a program during the acquisition process. The use of TRLs enables consistent, uniform, discussions of technical maturity across different types of technology.
