    Feedback systems introduced some degree of autonomy of machines throughout the history of engineering. Feedback has been introduced to the operations of engines, servos, production processes, aircraft, car and ship control systems. These systems are limited to particular tasks under limited variety of disturbances. They execute human commands very well but it is not within the scope of these feedb... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (399 KB)

    In an R&D project with both the AgentWise/DistriNet research group and Egemin N.V., the feasibility of an innovative, decentralized solution for managing and controlling warehouse management using automated guided vehicles, called E'GVs is investigated. The study is triggered by new and future system requirements such as scalability and flexibility. We exploit principles and mechanisms known from ... View full abstract»

    When deploying multiple UAVs each with its own sensor platform into an unstructured environment, the swarm of these sensor platforms, i.e. the team of UAVs needs to deploy in a manner that will gather information about the local environment, identify and track objects of interest, and act in a co-operative and robust manner. Guidance strategies that result in UAV platforms covering the area of int... View full abstract»

  • Agents out of control? Towards the formal verification of autonomous agent teams

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):75 - 83
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (216 KB)

    NASA are interested in using intelligent agents in future space missions, for example Mars exploration or deep space missions. Such missions might involve completely autonomous agents, able to direct their own activity, or might involve human-agent (typically human-robot) teams in which the participants work together. However, the dangers of allowing agents to control, even partially, critical asp... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a futuristic view of the contemporary techno-economic environment faced by local, trans-national and global manufacturers and their associated supply and demand networks. Theoretical constructs in evolutionary biology are used as a basis for the comprehension of the global economic context and these ontological ideas are subsequently applied to the contemporary and emergent tec...

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (278 KB)

    Recently there has been an increase of interest in the concept of satellite formation flying due to the efficiency gains that can be obtained from using a large number of small crafts instead of one large one. In formation flying it is required that the satellites should fly in specified positions relative to the others and with specified attitudes. For this specific motion pattern it is necessary...

    Agent technologies provide the basis for improved plant monitoring and diagnosis in the electrical utility industry. Plant condition monitoring systems tend to generate large volumes of data which need to be analysed and interpreted. Often, this may require many different approaches, including those that fall into the category of intelligent systems. Multi-agent systems technology offers a number ... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (405 KB)

    The concept of using autonomous intelligent agents in automated manufacturing processes has been recognised as having the potential to provide benefits in terms of production scheduling and faster recovery of plant systems in the event of a failure. The implementation of these ideas within production systems, however, are hampered by the technology available at present for programming industrial c... View full abstract»
