ABSTRACT
The dot-com bubble bursted in the year 2000 followed by a swift movement towards resource virtualization and cloud computing business model. Cloud computing emerged not as new form of computing or network technology but a mere remoulding of existing technologies to suit a new business model. Cloud robotics is understood as adaptation of cloud computing ideas for robotic applications. Current efforts in cloud robotics stress upon developing robots that utilize computing and service infrastructure of the cloud, without debating on the underlying business model. HTM5 is an OMG's MDA based Meta-model for agent oriented development of cloud robotic systems. The trade-view of HTM5 promotes peer-to-peer trade amongst software agents. HTM5 agents represent various cloud entities and implement their business logic on cloud interactions. Trade in a peer-to-peer cloud robotic system is based on relationships and contracts amongst several agent subsets. Electronic Institutions are associations of heterogeneous intelligent agents which interact with each other following predefined norms. In Dynamic Electronic Institutions, the process of formation, reformation and dissolution of institutions is automated leading to run time adaptations in groups of agents. DEIs in agent oriented cloud robotic ecosystems bring order and group intellect. This article presents DEI implementations through HTM5 methodology.

Fig7: Above are some instants from dynamic electronic institutions based digital business ecosystem simulations.

Mentions: The case study for the use of HTM5 methodology in developing a Dynamic Electronic Institution based Digital Business Ecosystem was executed in two phase. In the first phase computer simulations using VisuaBOT (VisualBots Simulator 2014) and VBA (Visual Basic for Applications 2014) were developed for conducting various experiments on the agent colony. Economic comparisons made between agent colonies working with and without dynamic electronic institutions. In the second phase, a scaled down version of the experiments performed on the simulations were implemented on five physical robots (TurtleBOTs). The principle motivation for these case study experiments is to show HTM5’s feasibility in implementation of a Dynamic Electronic Institution based cloud robotic ecosystem. This section discusses the system design, experiments, results and key observations. HTM5 is proved to be a usable methodology for this implementation since the experiments were performed using anatomical and design constructs prescribed by HTM5. Figure 7 show some instances from the simulated experiments. Figure 7 Part I shows a colony of BOTs (Agents) randomly moving in an environment. There are seed BOTs which are not moving and they act as the open ended joining point for other BOTs to form a coalition or an institution. Figure 7 Part II shows some of the seeds in Formation phase (3F life cycle) while some of the groups have formed a coalition and are now in Foundation phase. Figure 7 Part III shows formation of eight Institutions of different cardinality and type. Some of the groups are in Formation or Re-Formation phase. In going from Part III to Part IV two institutions have moved to Re-Foundation phase while one of the institutes (of Type I in Figure 7 Part III) has finalized freeing its member BOTs. All simulations are run with different experimental conditions and against different Market trends. When institutions are not allowed to be formed, the groups come together without setting up a set of norms and the dissolve as soon as a minimal number of member BOTs are unhappy with the current market direction/trend.Figure 7
