036 - Applying Agent-oriented Design to a Sail Boat Simulation


This paper describes the application of an agent-oriented modelling technique outlined in [BBY92] to a sail boat simulation. This case-study is chosen to demonstrate the principles of the modelling method, which is based on the systematic construction of definitive environments associated with different modes of observation of a real-world system. The potential for integrating several different views of physical phenomena is also illustrated.
