MACIV - Multi Agent Systems for Resources Management in Civil Construction - Past Research Projects
Project Summary
The aim of the MACIV project is the design and implementation of a computer system, mainly based on Distributed Artificial Intelligence techniques, enabling decentralised management of different resources in Civil Construction Companies.

This problem was inspired by a real large dimension company whose experts have been involved with us on the problem definition and system design. We developed new extended protocols to support complex negotiation between agents, either isolated or grouped together in approprate coalitions, in order to reach the best proposals (prices) for executing announced tasks.Financing: PRAXIS XXI
