In this paper we propose an architecture for the development of Intelligent Virtual Environments for Training, which is based on a collection of cooperative software agents. The first level of the architecture is an extension of the classical Intelligent Tutoring System architecture that adds to the expert, student, tutoring and communication modules a new(More)
Although, at this moment, there are not many researches on perceptual models for Intelligent Virtual Agents, the few that exist are more focused on visual than on hearing perception. This paper describes the work that the <i>Universidad Politicnica de Madrid</i>, in collaboration with the University of Nottingham, is carrying on, with the aim of endowing(More)
In this paper, we describe how we have integrated Steve, an intelligent tutor based on Soar, and HeSPI, a human simulation tool for planning and simulating maintenance tasks in nuclear power plants. The objectives of this integration were to test Steve's flexibility to be used in different applications and environments and to extend HeSPI to use it as a(More)
Interactive virtual worlds provide a powerful medium for experimental learning and entertainment. Nowadays, virtual environments often incorporate human-like embodied virtual agents with varying degrees of intelligence, getting what we call Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVAs). Collaboration between agents can be very important to reach aware of what is(More)
This paper presents the mechanisms proposed by a generic cognitive architecture for virtual characters with emotional influenced behaviors, called cognitiva, to maintain behavior control at will without giving up the richness provided by emotions. This architecture, together with a progressive specification process for its application, have been used(More)
