Modular industrial equipment in cyber-physical production system: Architecture and integration

Maxim Ya. Afanasev, Yuri V. Fedosov, Anastasiya A. Krylova, Sergey A. Shorokhov
2017 2017 21st Conference of Open Innovations Association (FRUCT)  
The modular control system under consideration is based on a multi-agent network, in which each entity (module) acts as an integral and indivisible part of the object as well as the enlarged structure.  ...  This approach allows one to combine the advantages of classical hierarchical control systems with the flexibility and reliability of decentralized multi-agent networks and also to carry out seamless integration  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors would like to thank the anonymous reviewers for their valuable and constructive comments and suggestions that greatly contributed to improve the quality of the final version  ...

Multi-Agent and Service Oriented Architectures for Intelligent Tutoring System Development

Egons Lavendelis, Janis Bicans
2011 Scientific Journal of Riga Technical University Computer Sciences  
Multi-Agent and Service Oriented Architectures for Intelligent Tutoring System Development Traditional modular architecture of Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs) does not provide sufficient modularity  ...  Distributed technologies like services and agents are used to increase modularity of ITSs by implementing traditional modules as sets of services or agents.  ...  So one can conclude that both agents and services can be used to implement highly modular and open systems.  ...

Abstraction for Model Checking Modular Interpreted Systems over ATL [chapter]

Michael Köster, Peter Lohmann
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose an abstraction technique for model checking multi-agent systems given as modular interpreted systems (MIS) which allow for succinct representations of compositional systems.  ...  This makes it possible to perform model checking on abstractions (which are much smaller in size) rather than on the concrete system which is usually too complex, thereby saving space and time.  ...  INTRODUCTION While an important feature of a Multi-agent system (MAS) is its modularity, only a few of the existing compact representations are modular, computationally grounded [15] and allow to represent  ...
