Situated Tuple Centres in ReSpecT

Matteo Casadei, Andrea Omicini
Coordination languages and models can play a key role in the engineering of environment in MAS (multiagent systems). In this paper, we take the ReSpecT coordination language for programming tuple centres, and extend it so as to govern interactions between agents and environment. In particular, we show how its event model can be generalised to support the management of general environment events and make tuple centres situated. To this end, first a case study is sketched where it is shown how the extended ReSpecT can be adopted to coordinate a system for sensing and controlling environmental properties. Then the syntax and semantics of the extended version of ReSpecT is discussed.
