This paper describes the specification and implementation of the middle layer in a new three-layer time-aware agent architecture. This architecture is designed for applications and environments where societies of humans and agents play equally active roles, but interact and operate in completely different time frames. The middle layer, called the Time-Aware Layer, uses services of the underlying real-time layer to co-ordinate the heterogeneous interactions present in composite humanagent… CONTINUE READING
