Guidelines to apply CBR in real-time multi-agent systems

Martí Navarro Llácer, Stella Heras Barberá, Vicente Julián Inglada



In real-time Multi-Agent Systems, Real-Time Agents merge intelligent deliberative techniques with real-time reactive actions in a distributed environment. CBR has been successfully applied in Multi-Agent Systems as deliberative mechanism for agents. However, in the case of Real-Time Multi-Agent Systems the temporal restrictions of their Real-Time Agents make their deliberation process to be temporally bounded. Therefore, this paper presents a guide to temporally bound the CBR to adapt it to be used as deliberative mechanism for Real-Time Agents.
