A survivable agent system depends on the incorporation of many recovery features. However, the optimal use of these recovery features requires the ability to assess the actual state of the agent system accurately at a given time. This paper describes an approach for the estimation of the state of an agent system using partially-observable Markov decision processes (POMDPs). POMDPs are dependent on a model of the agent system - components, environment, sensors, and the actuators that can correct… CONTINUE READING
