Abstract [en]

Modeling the environment and agent-environment relationships is not well explored in multi-agent systems, in particular not for software multi-agent systems. This paper aims to contribute with a generic model for active perception in situated multi-agent systems. Active perception enables an agent to direct its perception at the most relevant aspects in the environment, according to its current task. The model decomposes perception into three functionalities: sensing, interpreting, and filtering. The agent first senses its neighborhood through a set of selected foci, resulting in a representation. A set of perceptual laws enforces domain specific constraints on sensing. Next, the agent interprets the representation by means of descriptions, resulting in a percept. Percepts are expressions that can be understood by the internal machinery of the agent. Finally, the percept is filtered by a set of selected filters, restricting the perceived data according to specific context relevant selection criteria.
