Our research unit focuses on mobile middleware based agent technology. Our main efforts concern Hermes, agent-based middleware for mobile computing. Hermes is structured as a component-based, with a 3-layers software architecture. It provides an integrated environment where application domain experts can focus on designing activity workflow and ignore the topological structure of distributed execution environment. Generating mobile agents from a workflow specification is the responsibility of a context-aware compiler.
In the last few years, we have been validating Hermes into two application domains, one in industrial control and the other in Bioinformatics and System Biology.
These efforts have been carried out within the support of the Center of Excellence for Research "DEWS: Architectures and Design Methodologies for Embedded Controllers, Wireless Interconnect and System-on-chip" and by Italian CIPE project ``Sistemi Cooperativi Multiagente".
