Environment as Active Support of Interaction

Environment as Active Support of Interaction
Indirect interactions have been shown to be of interest in MultiAgent Systems (MAS), in the simulation area as well as in real apns. The environment is also emerging as a first-order abstraction. Intuitively, the environment being a common medium for the agents, it should be a suitable paradigm to provide an infrastructure for both direct and indirect interactions. However, it still lacks of a consensus on how the two relate to each other, and how the environment can support effectively notions as communication or awareness. We propose a general and operational model, Environment as Active Support of Interaction, that enables the agents to actively participate in the definition of their perceptions. Then, we show how the model provides a suitable framework for the regulation of the MAS interactions.
