Ambient intelligence generally refers to scenarios of computationally enriched environments enabling us both to better interact with the physical world and to integrate in the physical world smart functionalities. In this context, multiagent systems are a natural paradigm to develop and deploy dynamic and situation-aware ambient intelligence services.Here we present and discuss our experience in the development of agent-based ambient intelligent services for the city of Reggio Emilia, as performed in the context of the LAICA project.
