MULTIAGENT SYSTEMS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PERCEPTION Francesco Amigoni* and Marco Somalvico
 

Summary: MULTIAGENT SYSTEMS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PERCEPTION
Francesco Amigoni* and Marco Somalvico

1. INTRODUCTION
Multiagent systems are distributed sys-
tems in which a number of individual autono-
mous heterogeneous agents interact and op-
erate in an environment. Agents can be physi-
cal (computers or robots) or logical (software)
entities. One of the early classical applications
of the multiagent systems was in distributed
sensing and monitoring, as appears from the
work by Victor Lesser and colleagues (1981)
on the Distributed Vehicle Monitoring Testbed
(DVMT). Starting from this pioneering work, a
number of techniques for multiagent-based
environmental perception have been devel-
oped.
In this paper, we discuss the state of the
art and the main techniques used in multiagent
