Communicating agents architecture with applications in multimodal humancomputer interaction
We present our idea of solving parts of the vision task with an organic computing approach. We have designed a multiagent system (MAS) of many different modules working on different tasks towards the same goal, the recognition of a human gesture. We will introduce our point of view of an agent and how a group of agents can cooperate with other organically inspired techniques like the democratic integration for information merging and bunch graph matching for face/object recognition. In this article we want to explain the need, the concept and the software for our work. Two applications currently limited to the tracking problem, demonstrate that the concept is fruitful and in use.
