Organizational structures supported by agent-oriented methodologies

David Isern, David Sánchez, Antonio Moreno
2011 Journal of Systems and Software  
In order to assist the development of multi-agent systems, agent-oriented methodologies (AOM) have been created in the last years to support modelling more and more complex applications.  ...  Modern AOMs should be able to capture and represent organizational structures, defining interaction and collaboration patterns between agents, their internal roles and dependencies between groups of agents  ...  Agent interaction is specified in the meta-model as interaction protocols associated to role pairs played by agents.  ...

A survey on bio inspired meta heuristic based clustering protocols for wireless sensor networks

A Datta, S Nandakumar
2017 IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering  
The author presents a brief survey on various bio inspired swarm intelligence based protocols used in routing data in wireless sensor networks while outlining their general principle and operation.  ...  Due to Sink mobility, the path between two sensor nodes continuously changes and this has a profound effect on the operational longevity of the network and a need arises for a protocol which utilizes minimal  ...  The bacteria foraging optimization uses the strategy of allowing agents to stochastically and collectively swarm toward optima.  ...

Social Interactions of Autonomous Agents: Private and Global Views on Communication [chapter]

F. Dignum
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Often a global view is taken to x some protocols (like contract net) for all the possible social interactions between agents within the system.  ...  In this paper we investigate the case where there might not be a (or one) xed protocol for the social interaction and where the agents do not necessarily react in the same way to each message from other  ...  A directive from agent i results in an obligation of agent j (towards i) if agent i was authorised to give the order or i has a power relation towards j.  ...

Multi-agent Architecture Model for Driving Mobile Manipulator Robots

A. Hentout, B. Bouzouia, Z. Toukal
2008 International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems  
The interaction between the various agents is modeled by the use of the interaction diagrams of Agent UML (states and protocol diagrams).  ...  These last ones constitute the Mobile Robot agent and the Manipulator Robot agent controlling, respectively, the mobile base and the manipulator arm.  ...  Protocol diagrams The protocol diagrams describe the interaction protocols used by the agents. These diagrams represent the messages exchanged between agents.  ...
