Chapter . Complementary agents for intelligent cluster sensors technology
School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, The University of Manchester, Sackville Street, Po Box 88, Manchester. UK.
The purpose of this article is to discuss further expectations for a new concept of intelligent cluster sensors. New concepts of agents have to be implemented embedding new functionalities to dynamically manage cooperative agents for autonomous machines most required in manufacturing for zero defects production. The future trend is in intelligent clusters or distributed sensors in hybrid networks leading to a more global object control within a machine able to self organize into fault-tolerant and scalable systems.
