dc.description.abstractCyber-physical systems refer to a new generation of synergy systems with integrated computational and physical processes which interact with one other. The development and simulation of cyber-physical systems (CPSs) are obstructed by the complexity of the subsystems of which they are comprised, fundamental differences in the operation of cyber and physical elements, significant correlative dependencies among the elements, and operation in dynamic and open environments. The Multiple Belief-Desire-Intention (BDI) agent system (BDI multi-agent system) is a promising choice for overcoming these challenges, since it offers a natural way to decompose complex systems or large scale problems into decentralized, autonomous, interacting, more or less intelligent entities. In particular, BDI agents have the ability to interact with, and expand the capabilities of, the physical world through computation, communication, and control. A BDI agent has its philosophical grounds on intentionality and practical reasoning, and it is natural to combine a philosophical model of human practical reasoning with the physical operation and any cyber infrastructure. In this thesis, we introduce the BDI Model, discuss implementations of BDI agents from an ideal theoretical perspective as well as from a more practical perspective, and show how they can be used to bridge the cyber infrastructure and the physical operation using the framework. We then strengthen the framework's performance using the state-of-the-art parallel computing architecture and eventually propose a BDI agent based software framework to enable the efficient modeling and simulation of heterogeneous CPS systems in an integrated manner.
