  journal={IEEE Trans. Automat. Contr.},
Distributed discrete event systems in which agents or local sites are required to communicate in order to perform some speci ed monitoring and control tasks are considered Each agent is modeled as a nite state machine that must be able to distinguish between its states to perform some required task To help it disambiguate states an agent uses a combination of direct observation obtained from sensor readings available to that agent and communicated information obtained from sensor readings… CONTINUE READING
