As mobile computing becomes ubiquitous, Mobile Ad Hoc Networks are becoming increasingly important. MANETs allow for a bring-your-own-network solution to rescue workers at natural-disaster locations, where traditional networking infrastructure is not likely to exist. As a design paradigm, multiagent systems (MASs) can help support management and coordination of such environments. The complex, ever-changing environments of MANETs pose difficult challenges to a MAS. Dependable agents must be environment-aware with the ability to reason about a constant flow of complex data, including network state and feedback of system performance. The MAS must be adaptive and self-stabilizing to ensure dependable operation.
Index Terms:
mobile ad hoc networks, self-stabilizing multi-agent systems, environment-aware agents
