Integrating High-Level and Detailed Agent Coordination into a Layered Architecture [chapter]

XiaoQin Zhang, Anita Raja, Barbara Lerner, Victor Lesser, Leon Osterweil, Thomas Wagner
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In contrast, the upper-layer pertains to domain specific coordination tasks such as the formation of high-level goals and objectives for the agent, and decisions about whether or not to coordinate with  ...  Detailed domain state is used at this level to make these high-level coordination decisions. In contrast, decisions at the lower-level do not need to reason about this detailed domain state.  ...  In this paper, we describe the layered coordination model and introduce a general agent architecture based on the model (Section 2).  ...
