Abstract

In this work we propose an approach for comfortable and accelerated development of user interfaces for software agents.We apply model-based techniques and emphasise the capability of this technique by describing two user interfaces which are different in nature, but have been developed with the same model. We present the applicability of both user interfaces by means of an agent-based application in the domestic energy domain. As opposed to similar approaches we retain all degrees of freedom for the applied multi-agent framework.
