Ubiquitous computing is the 3rd wave in computing, the place the common use of latest cellular technology-implementing instant communications akin to own electronic assistants (PDAs) and clever telephones permits a brand new kind of complex functions. some time past years, the main target of study in cellular providers has geared toward the every time, anyplace precept (ubiquitous computing). in spite of the fact that, there's extra to it than that.

The expanding call for for dispensed challenge fixing ended in the advance of multi-agent platforms. The latter are shaped from a suite of autonomous software program entities whose collective abilities might be utilized in complicated and real-time domain names. the objective of such platforms is to illustrate how goal-directed, powerful and optimum habit can come up from interactions among person self sufficient clever software program brokers. those software program entities express features like autonomy, responsiveness, pro-activeness and social skill. Their performance and effectiveness has confirmed to be hugely depending on the layout and improvement of the appliance area or context.

Context is the set of compatible environmental states and settings relating a person, that's suitable for a situation-sensitive software within the technique of adapting the prone and knowledge provided to the consumer. Agent know-how appears the appropriate expertise to supply the potential for exploring the dynamic context of the consumer which will offer value-added providers or to execute extra and complicated initiatives. during this admire, agent-based ubiquitous computing can reap the benefits of marrying the agent-based know-how with the large use of allotted performance, to be deployed for light-weight units. It additionally allows the combo of ubiquity and intelligence in several software components and allows to method a number of study issues in laptop technology, man made intelligence and engineering from a brand new perspective.

Example text

Let’s say, for instance, that the robot wants to greet the user. Since the robot does not have hardware capabilities to do that, it will request the help of the user node through an ACL request . The user interface agent will forward the request to the avatar agent in charge of the virtual character associated with the robot. The avatar character will then carry out this highlevel request by using the specific capabilities of the virtual character. As a result, the snowman character will greet the user by turning its whole body toward the user and by waving its hat - an animation built into the character’s VRML model.

Physical robots then become another observation point, from which software agents can follow the user in his/her activities and movements. This also increases the number of possible agent-user interaction scenarios, which can include a variety of real world situated interaction, supporting, for example, applications in which the agent needs to learn to adapt to the user. A notable example of mutation and metamorphosis in agent-based ubiquitous robots is investigated within the Agent Chameleons project [Duffy et al.

Often, the effectiveness of these systems depends on the ability of software agents to take into account the state of the physical environment where their components are deployed, as well as the state of their human users. g. different computational power or different interface capabilities, makes software agents the nat- Mixed Reality Agent (MiRA) Chameleons 19 ural candidates for maintaining the connection with the user through his daily activities [Barakonyi et al. (2004)]. However, to date, there are not many examples of virtual characters being used in these applications.
