SELF-KNOWLEDGE BASED ON THE ATOMIC CAPABILITIES CONCEPT - A Perspective to Achieve Sure Commitments among Physical Agents

Christian G. Quintero M., Josep Ll. de la Rosa, Josep Vehí

Abstract

This paper presents a perspective based on the atomic capabilities concept (AC2) to include control-oriented knowledge in the decision making structure of physical agents (e.g. mobile robots). These agents operate in a real environment managing physical objects (e.g. their physical bodies) in coordinated tasks. AC2 guarantees an appropriate agent-oriented representation about the specifications of automatic controllers installed within the physical agents. This approach allows to each agent a reliable self-knowledge which concludes in achieving sure commitments and intelligent control in a cooperative system. Examples and conclusions are presented, emphasising the advantages of our proposal in a coordinated control scenario.
