Abstract
This paper presents an approach to develop and manage self organizing distributed components systems in dynamically changing environments. The main idea of this approach is to construct an application by a dynamic association of bio-inspired modular agents that can migrate and reorganize by themselves while the application is being executed. An association of agents can be migrated and transformed according to agents’ local policies including deployment based on biological processes. We have designed an adaptive architecture, which can reorganize and reconfigure agents after several biological concepts and mechanisms, and implemented a platform to host the architecture on the dynamically changing environments. The agents in the proposed framework are designed based on several biological concepts (e.g., energy exchange and pheromone emission). This paper describes our research effort to design, implement and deploy a scalable infrastructure for autonomous adaptive agents. We depict several key features of the agents in our architecture, and describe the design and implementation of the proposed platform, showing how the platform satisfies a set of functional requirements derived from the features of our agents. We also present some simulation results to examine scalability and efficiency of the platform.
