An Energy Efficient Multiagent Middleware for Physical Complex System

Jean-Paul Jamont, Michel Occello, André Lagrèze

Abstract

Open physical complex artificial systems involve wireless autonomous entities submitted to strength constrainted energetic policies. Their features naturally lead to apply multiagent techniques to ensure both the autonomy of entities and the best whole system organization. We propose a multiagent approach for wireless communication robust management for such physical system using self-organization mechanisms. We show the performances of this approach by comparison to usual wireless protocols. The genericity of our contribution is high-lighted by the proposition of a middleware layer integrated in agent. We give an insight to a real world instrumentation application using the middleware.
