This paper motivates, from historical, philosophical, and industrial points of view, the adoption of a novel scheme for developing complex measuring systems as perceptive agencies. The general concept of agency, a cooperative multiagent system defined within distributed artificial intelligence and robotics, is discussed together with its particular application to the field of intelligent instruments. An embryonic example of perceptive agency applied to the field of environmental monitoring is reported.
