This paper describes the design and implementation of the FTMA(Fault Tolerance Multi-Agents), which is running on MHAP(MOM-based on Home Automation Platform) environment. FTMA has been designed and implemented in DOORAE environment for MHAP. The physical device and network layer consists of any network and physical device supporting any networking technology for MHAP. The infrastructure layer introduces infrastructure to provide service management and deployment functions for MHAP. DOORAE(Distributed Object Oriented collaboRAtion Environment) is a good example of the foundation technology for a computer-based multimedia collaborative work that allows development of required application by combining many agents composed of units of functional module when user wishes to develop a new application field. It is a multi-agent system that is implemented with object oriented concept for MHAP.
