From Reality to Mind: A Cognitive Middle Layer of Environment Concepts for Believable Agents
The environment is an important but overlooked piece in the construction of multiagent-based scenarios. Richness, believability and variety of scenarios are inseparable from the environment because every action and interaction of agents is based around the environment they are situated in. The prerequisite, however, is that agents must be able to understand the environment and capture its dynamic nature.

The middle layer is modelled with a structured speciļ¬cation based on Web Ontology Language (OWL) to be extensible and reusable. Environmental concepts are integrated into the goal processing of agents to trigger intentions. This paper also reports our initial investigation about the design of a simulation system for multiple environment-aware agents and multiple use...
