Towards an Integrated Approach of Real-Time Coordination for Multi-agent Systems
Real-time computations in multi-agent systems have been studied from different perspectives of reasoning, message passing, resource management and negotiations. Separate treatment of any of these perspectives may result in performance amelioration in one dimension while over-passing others. Here we propose an integrated “real-time” mechanism where all dimensions of temporal behavior are suggested in one unified model. Here in this position paper, we argue for an integrated and comprehensive treatment of “real-time” issue under the title of coordination. Our position regarding real-time agent coordination would result in overall performance betterment and overhead lessening, if all sub-processes are made to respect “notion of time” in design. We analyze current approaches and options as well as present an outline for an integrated and comprehensive view of “real-time coordination’. Key words: Multi-Agent Systems, Real-time, Coordination, Integrated Approach
