  • Improving plan execution robustness through capability aware maintenance
           of plans by BDI agents
    • Authors: Alan White, Austin Tate, Michael Rovatsos
      Pages: 306 - 335
      Abstract: In a realistic environment, intentions of belief-desire-intention (BDI) agents may be threatened by exogenous change. Subsequent activity failure may incur debilitative consequences that hinder both recovery and subsequent goal achievement. Capability aware, maintaining plans (CAMP-BDI) embodies BDI agents with capability knowledge, allowing anticipation of threats to activity success and stimulating the proactive, preventative modification of intended plans. We describe resultant agent-level algorithms and supporting architecture, including extension to provide decentralised, distributed maintenance through structured messaging. Our results show superior goal achievement to a reactive equivalent in a stochastic environment, increasing with the likelihood of debilitative failure effects. We suggest CAMP-BDI offers a valuable approach towards robustness, particularly in tandem with reactive recovery methods.

  • Aggregate plans for multiagent systems
    • Authors: Mirko Viroli, Danilo Pianini, Alessandro Ricci, Angelo Croatti
      Pages: 336 - 365
      Abstract: We introduce the notion of 'aggregate plan', as a specification of the collective behaviour of a team of agents embedded in space. Aggregate plans are managed by self-organisation: they can be spread from a source agent, get iteratively diffused to the whole MAS, and be dynamically selected and carried on by each agent based on its local deliberation process. This approach is rooted on the aggregate computing paradigm, recently introduced to address open, dynamic, and large-scale scenarios of pervasive computing and IoT. We define the approach, describe the underlying computational mechanisms, discuss its expressiveness, and present an example of people rescuing in disaster scenarios.

  • Developing ePartners for human-robot teams in space based on ontologies
           and formal abstraction hierarchies
    • Authors: Tibor Bosse, Leo Breebaart, Jurriaan Van Diggelen, Mark A. Neerincx, Joaquim Rosa, Nanja J.J.M. Smets
      Pages: 366 - 398
      Abstract: Manned space missions are typically performed by teams composed of humans as well as technical systems and are situated in complex, dynamic and safety-critical domains. Intelligent electronic partners (<i>ePartners</i>) can play an important role here to support human-robot teams in their collaborative problem solving process when things do not go as planned. To engage in effective team collaboration, ePartners, humans and robots must align their communication at the right level of abstraction. In this paper, an approach is put forward to represent the functionality of human-robot teams in a formal manner using abstraction hierarchies. In this way, formal relations between domain knowledge at the system, functional and mission-oriented levels are established and reasoning rules are used to navigate through these relations. As a consequence, ePartners are equipped with the ability to reason about the status of a mission, propose solutions in non-nominal situations and provide explanations for the proposed solutions. The approach has been implemented within a mobile application on a tablet that can be used to support astronaut-robot teams during space missions. The application has been evaluated during an experiment at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in the context of a Mars mission.

  • Agent-based modelling of coalition formation in energy micro-grids
    • Authors: Muhammad Yasir, Martin Purvis, Maryam Purvis, Bastin Tony Roy Savarimuthu
      Pages: 399 - 432
      Abstract: In micro-grids energy is generated and consumed locally from intermittent renewable energy sources. Because of energy variability, sometimes there are energy surpluses and sometimes deficits. The ill effects of intermittency can be reduced by trading energy by means of a connected electricity grid. This work introduces an alternative solution by forming coalitions among micro-grid communities, since mainline electricity grids are subject to faults and outages. These coalitions can withstand power outages by sharing energy among them. We present a model for dynamic micro-grid coalition formation and demonstrate that the model is scalable and preserves the autonomy of individual micro-grids by enabling them to join and depart from a coalition. Our empirical studies demonstrate that our model reduces overall 'discomfort' (a notion defined in the paper), so that even when all participating micro-grids in a coalition experience deficits, they can share energy so that their overall discomfort is minimised.
