A system modeling is presented for a Smart-home Healthy Lifestyle Assistant System (SHLAS), covering healthy lifestyle promotion by intelligently collecting and analyzing context information, executing control instruction and suggesting health plans for users. SHLAS is Multi-agent based. Each agent has three levels: the Goal Layer has business rules for representing agent goals; the Strategy Layer provides technical rules and processes for guiding how the agent reacts to events; the Component Layer is made up of components, some components are called by technical rules and processes in the Strategy Layer, some others are used for communicating with third party systems. This agent framework enables the customizability of agents in SHLAS. We also introduce an Ontology-based domain knowledge and context model to capture and represent the agents, and agent behavior which provides agents with reasoning ability. SHLAS helps users with healthy lifestyle promotion by tracking and analyzing their behaviors, and recommending health plans. The paper closes with an empirical evaluation of the approach from the point of view of customizability. © 2013 Springer-Verlag.
