Simulation based contract management in intelligent robotic agent system
W. Jacak, K. Pröll - Simulation based contract management in intelligent robotic agent system - Proceedings of International Mediterranean Modelling Multiconference I3M2007, Genoa, Italien, 2007, pp. 10-18
A multiagent robotic system consists of a group of autono-mous agents on the first - lower - level of its hierarchy, and the contract and conflict management agents on the second - upper - level of the hierarchy. The contract man-agement agent considers task distribution when a new job enters the system. It has to direct autonomous agents by specifying individual goals (subtasks) for each of them. The implementation of the simulation based contracting process for transfer jobs is presented.
