Paper Abstract

This paper describes a distributed architecture consisting of independent processed (agents) running in parallel and using assembly robotics as an experimental testbed. This architecture can support several kinds of organizational structures and of cooperation policies. An agent is described in an object-oriented environment and resides in a VAX processor connected to a local area network. We describe the kernel facilities replicated for all agents in order to participate in group problem solving and how they coordinate their efforts by exchanging information. We discuss in particular a heterarchical group organization where cooperation is made on a request basis.
