Software Agents in the IMPACT System




The IMPACT (Interactive Maryland Platform for Agents Collaborating Together) is an ongoing joint project (with Univ.

Software agent architectures are emerging as a design paradigm for distributed hetereogeneous data access.

Practical applications of IMPACT include e.g. supply chain management, the aircraft control flight into terrain (CFIT) problem (Lockheed, Boeing), and department store applications.

The system is based on the following design principles and components:
