Abstract

This paper proposes an architecture for defining and executing agents’ behaviour from purposes. This architecture is used for the definition of an autonomous camera which makes automatic shooting of a virtual reality scene in real time. The user or others agents program the camera in a declarative and qualitative way. Multiples purposes can be specified. In case of contradictory purposes, the camera finds a compromise or, if not possible, leave some purposes. Multiple agents programmed by purposes generate complex and credible animations.
