Paper Abstract

An architecture for implementing complex real-time systems has been developed in which a society of multiple co-operating agents provide a structure which allows distributed Sensor/Plan/Actuator subsystems to function under non-ideal/error conditions. The structure allows modifications to be made and new techniques and methods to be incorporated without significant disruption to the overall system. A novel supporting parallel hardware architecture based on rotating dataftow provides real-time capability.
