2011 Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Humanized Computing  
This work introduces an alternative approach to designing ambient intelligent environments by using a multi-agent system consisting of agents that represent inhabitants (humans, animals, plants, and objects) of the environment and physical devices (sensors and actuators) that control and monitor the environment. Inhabitants are able to compromise their own needs for the betterment of the environment as a whole. This synergy creates a balance where each inhabitant potentially receives

This work addresses several issues involving multiple parameter optimization and constraint satisfaction while maintaining the well being and physical structure of the inhabitants of an environment as well as the comfort of multiple human inhabitants sharing the same environment and its resources.
