Multi-Agent Architecture for Rehabilitation Strategy (MAARS)

H. Kothari and B. Sharp (UK)


Multi-agent systems, rehabilitation, agent communication,and blackboard architecture.


In complex applications like water utilities, the expertise consists of various kinds of knowledge domains, skills and strategies processed by different groups who collaborate to develop an efficient and proactive water mains rehabilitation strategy. A single knowledge based system would fail to integrate this diversity of knowledge and strategy. A multi-agent system is ideal to represent this diversity. There have been many multi-agent system architectures developed and been implemented in the last few decades. This paper describes our multi-agent system approach based on the blackboard architecture, and outlines the major benefits of such architecture.
