Software Agents in Industrial Automation Systems
May-June 2013 (vol. 30 no. 3)
pp. 20-24
Stephan Pech, BASF SE
Agent orientation is moving from its origins in computer science into applied automation systems engineering. The main benefit of using software agents in industrial automation is the combined application of agent-oriented software engineering with growing fields such as semantic technologies. Software agents also provide flexibility, which is often the key requirement for creating software system architectures that can evolve at runtime.
