The FM Monitoring Agent GUI is composed of two parts:
- Virtual FM. It offers a global, visual representation of
both the agent flow (from scene to scene) and the (intra-scene and
inter-scene) agent communication flow during a tournament session
taking place in the auction house.
- Control panel. It allows an easy interaction with the
Monitoring Agent thanks to its design, highly inspired on a video
player remote controller so as to help the user identify the available
functions by analogy.
The next sections will attempt at presenting both components
in some more detail.
