Simulation of multiagent system for detection characteristics points in biomedical signals

Alina Momot, Michał Momot, Roman Seredyński


The article describes a multi-agent system for the purpose of detecting the characteristic points in biomedical signals. In this system, there are many agents with their local knowledge bases, whose parameters are updated in the communication process with a single supervisory agent. The article also presents the virtual environment designed to simulate the work of the proposed system.
