A Society of Self-Organizing Agents in the Intelligent Home

Werner Dilger

A concept of the intelligent home is presented which is based on the idea that the functioning of the intelligent home emerges from the cooperation of different agents each representing a device of the home. The agents are grouped together in systems each of which realizes a certain function of the intelligent home. The security system is taken as an example for the way how these systems may be organized, namely in a highly decentralized way. The cooperation of the agents in this system is done through self-organization.
