Multi-Agent Control System

Abstract

The paper deals with distributed planning in a Multi-Agent System (MAS) constituted by several intelligent agents each one has to interact with the other autonomous agents. The problem faced is how to ensure a distributed planning through the cooperation in our multi-agent system. Finally, we use JADE platform to create agents and ensure the communication between them. A Benchmark Production System is used as a running example to explain our contribution.
