Abstract

Behavior-Oriented Design (BOD) is a development methodology for creating complex, complete agents such as virtual-reality characters, autonomous robots, intelligent tutors or intelligent environments. BOD agents are modular, but not multi-agent systems. They use hierarchical reactive plans to perform arbitration between their component modules. BOD provides not only architectural specifications for modules and plans, but a methodology for building them. The BOD methodology is cyclic, consisting of rules for an initial decomposition and heuristics for revising the specification over the process of development.
