This paper concerns the use of a multi-agent architecture for application in monitoring and supervisory systems. After an overview of the architecture, two applications are described which served as test beds. The first of these is a study on the diagnosis of faults in power distribution networks and the second a system to monitor and to predict air pollution episodes in urban environments. The applications are compared, and examples of system design are presented. The purpose and impact of various task and control distributions are analysed, and the issues involved in human interaction are discussed.
