Paper Abstract

Coherent contours generation requires a judicious combination of processing at di erent levels of details, making this process very complex to achieve. Indeed, one has to analysis locally surfaces irregularities, to select at an intermediate level, the right edges among a set of candidates, and to obtain at a higher level, a coherent semantics that represents the global topology of the surface. We propose in this paper an adaptive approach, using the multi-agents paradigm to achieve this task. In our approach, three kinds of agents are used, each associated with a level of analysis. Agents of a same level as well as of di erent levels, interact together using the shared environment, in a cooperative way. At a same level, intermediate results are exchanged whereas inter-levels interactions, allows higher levels agents to guide to processing of lower levels agents, by giving them feedback of their work, through reinforcement/inhibition mechanisms.
