Multi-Agent Platforms on Smart Devices: Dream or Reality ?

Abstract : Due to the emergence of Intemet and embedded computing, humans will be more and more faced to an increasing intrusion of computing in their day-m-day life by what it is called now smart communicating objects. Agents' characteristics like pro-activeness, autonomy and sociability and the inherent distributed nature of multi-agent systems make them a promising tool to use in the smart devices applications. This paper presents an overview of multi-agent platforms created for use on small devices (i.e. devices with limited computing power) and for each multi-agent platform reviewed we try to identify what are its main characteristics and architectural concepts. The utility of using multi-agent platforms or FIPA-compliant ones is also brought into discussion.
