DomoBuilder: A MultiAgent Architecture for Home Automation
Current technologies permit people to make use of various systems able to fulfill most of their needs while being at home. However, their use is often not intuitive and they are also difficult to integrate. In this paper we propose a solution to these issues, together with a pragmatical demonstration of its effectiveness. The architectural solution we devised, called der, is aimed at abstracting hardware (i.e., electronic devices) and software (i.e., applications, systems), with specific emphasis on the ability of simplifying human interaction while combining heterogeneous devices within the same application. In so doing, system integration is promoted, making it easier to devise complex devices that implement new behaviors while preserving ease of use. A case study has also been devised and implemented, which highlights the great potential of the DomoBuilder architecture.
