Collective Adaptation through Concurrent Planning: the Case of Sustainable Urban Mobility


In this paper we address the challenges that impede collective adaptation in smart mobility systems by proposing a notion of ensembles. Ensembles enable systems with collective adaptability to be built as emergent aggregations of autonomous and self-adaptive agents. Adaptation in these systems is triggered by a run-time occurrence, which is known as an issue. The novel aspect of our approach is, it allows agents affected by an issue in the context of a smart mobility scenario to adapt collaboratively with minimal impact on their own preferences through an issue resolution process based on concurrent planning algorithms.
