ABSTRACT
Multiagent systems and agent technologies provide industrial developers with a novel implementation paradigm and a wide range of ready-to-use technologies, development platforms, and techniques and algorithms. The Industry Track of the Fourth International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems covered a wide range of industrial applications of agent technologies. The articles in this department intend to give some indication of agent technology's readiness for commercial deployment, based primarily on the presentations and discussions at the Industry Track, and briefly describe agent deployment in unmanned'aerial'vehicle control, logistics, manufacturing, and electricity distribution.
