This paper proposes a multi-agent framework to support applications development of ambient systems. In the programming model of the framework, ambient systems can be developed by collaboration of mobile agents and service (or resident) agents, where resident agents provide application services on devices and mobile agents provide communication services on behalf of owner applications. On top of device infrastructure, the architecture of the framework consists of three layers: framework service
