Abstract

This paper proposes a distributed artificial intelligence framework to address the co-ordination of interactions among the different standard virtual components during the virtual prototyping of fluid power systems. The approach considers the hydraulic system as a multi-agent system and associates each virtual hydraulic component to a domain agent. A control agent is used to co-ordinate the interactions in the multi-agent system. The representation of the proposed domain agents and the coordinated communication via the control agent are discussed in this paper. The paper also presents some details on the implementation of the proposed agent-based architecture and explains how agent communication and collaboration has been accomplished using Java and VRML.
