    The ambient intelligence scenario depicts electronic environments that are sensitive and responsive to the presence of people. This paper presents an ambient intelligence system whose goal is to enhance the experience of pedestrians moving inside the related physical environment. In particular, in our approach the environment itself is endowed with a set of sensors that perceive the presence of hu... View full abstract»

  • Self-Organizing Integration of Competing Reasoners for Information Matching

    Self-organizing systems are robust, scalable, adaptive to a changing environment, and tolerant to noise and incomplete or conflicting information. These are the requirements for our information matching system (IMS) that organizes models of document contents and user interest in an abstract information space by relevance to provide any-time recommendations of other users (for collaboration) or doc...

  • ASSL Specification of Emergent Self-Adapting Behavior for NASA Swarm-Based Exploration Missions

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (305 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    We describe a biologically-inspired approach to modeling self-adapting behavior of NASA swarm-based exploration missions, whereby individual entities in the system can sacrifice themselves for the greater good of the entire system. We investigate aspects of possible emergent self-adapting behavior of swarm-based systems, inspired by the self-sacrifice behavior observed in some hive cultures. Moreo... View full abstract»

  • Self-Adaptive Selective Sensor Network Querying

    The reduction of power consumption during the deployment and operation of sensor networks has commonly been recognized as a key challenge. Many proposals have been put forth to save power by taking advantage of the inherent redundancies in sensor network's operation by minimizing the number of agents active in answering a query at any point in time. The highest level of power saving can be obtaine... View full abstract»

  • Determining Object Safety Using a Multiagent, Collaborative System

    Publication Year: 2008 , Page(s): 25 - 30
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (321 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    We consider the problem of object safety: how objects endowed with processing, communication, and sensing capabilities can determine their safety. We assign an agent to each object capable of looking out for its own self interests, while concurrently collaborating with its neighbors and learning/reinforcing its beliefs from them. After considering related work, we propose a general framework consi... View full abstract»

  • Hierarchical Organizations and a Supporting Software Architecture for Floating Car Data

    Publication Year: 2008 , Page(s): 31 - 36
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (599 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    The use of floating car data is an interesting method to monitor traffic. Vehicles act as local traffic sensors and data from individual vehicles is aggregated into higher-level information. We propose a number of reusable organization abstractions and a software architecture to support a multi-agent approach applied to floating car data. The abstractions are based on the idea of hierarchical orga... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses a business scenario based on so-called tradable micro-services which is intended to explain the dynamics of a market to which actors contribute both as consumers and providers of telecommunication and Web based services. We argue that a service evolution is possible with leads to services which are adapted to the needs and objectives of various virtual communities. Furthermore... View full abstract»
