Defining and Transforming Models of Parkinson Patients in the Development of Assisted-Living Multi-agent Systems with INGENIAS
Some people suffer from the Parkinson disease and need assistance for living. Multi-agent Systems (MASs) can provide a suitable solution for their assistance. However, each patient has different circumstances, symptoms and skills that need assistance. This paper presents a model-driven approach for developing MASs customized for each patient. The current approach presents a metamodel for modeling Parkinson patients as models. In addition, this paper introduces a suite of model transformations that can transform a Parkinson patient model into an initial MAS model. This MAS model can be refined by designers and the programming code can be generated from this model. This approach applies the INGENIAS methodology for generating the MAS from a design model. Finally, a case study is presented as a proof of concept.
