Patterns of Delegate MAS

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Delegate MAS has been proposed and investigated as an integrated coordination technique for so-called self-organising coordination-and-control applications. Delegate MAS consist of three types of light weight, ant-like agents that assist domain agents in their coordination tasks - the types are exploration, intention and feasibility ants. The technique is especially suitable for distributed applications in large-scale, dynamic systems. Literature shows that, for various application domains, solution approaches based on self-organisation have been proposed that have several similarities to delegate MAS, yet are not identical.
