Abstract

This paper presents a new approach with software agents to support the task of preventive fire protection engineering. Agents are stationary or mobile software components to support the user in his planning tasks according to their specific design. Agents can act autonomously within their environment, which means that they can solve problems without the need of control through a human being or another system. In order to react to modifications of the environment agents observe their environment continuously and react adequately to modifications. To reach a result it is necessary for autonomous agents to react particularly in a goal-oriented way. The purpose of an agent system in the area of fire protection angineering is to organize a distributed problem solution by many agents representing adaptive experts. Using available object-oriented, net-enabled models of standard applications and based on the technology of the software agents, a platform for collaborative fire protection engineering is designed. Local service-agents provide necessary information in a collaboration platform. By communication between these local service-agents and mobile verifying-agents the appropriate information can be processed to verify the fire protection model of a building.
