The new intelligence system named Ambient Intelligence (AmI) is now in the limelight. In this AmI environment, when multiple people in various situations cooperate mutually, they need to to be supported simultaneously and effectively. Furthermore, peoples’ context and activities change continuously, so it is also necessary to achieve dynamic correspondence between people. Therefore, a planning agent has been developed to enable context-aware service composition. The planning agent creates plans dynamically to support multiple people in different environments. In the experiment, the dish event scenario was adopted and the planning agent allotted multiple people ingredient collection tasks.
