Abstract

Ambient Intelligence represents a vision of the future whereby the world will be saturated with embedded electronic devices that are sensitive and responsive to people. This technology will combine the concepts of intelligent systems with that of pervasive computing. Intelligent agents of varying capabilities will provide the foundations for many applications within this domain. As a means of achieving this objective a framework – Agent Factory Micro Edition (AFME) has been developed to enable the creation of agent-based applications on computationally constrained devices such as cellular digital mobile phones. It has been specifically designed to tackle the performance and memory footprint issues associated with executing intentional agents on mobile devices.
