Planning for the Microclimate of Urban Spaces: Notes from a Multi-agent Approach
Agents, agent-oriented modelling and multi-agent systems (MAS) introduce new and unconventional concepts in computer science. These elements are able to sparkle new modelling perspectives in behavioural knowledge and in environmental domain, where interactions between humans and natural/artificial agents are not standardized. MAS are considered as “societies of agents” interacting to coordinate their behaviour and often cooperate to achieve some collective goal. In order to show the involved agents and their roles in a quasi-hierarchical scale of interaction behaviours, we propose the setting up of schemes aimed at simplifying the behaviors and the interactions between human and non-human agents in indoor spaces for urban microclimate management.
