  abstract =     "Monitoring is an important activity for any embedded
                 agent. To operate effectively, agents must gather
                 information about their environment. The policy by
                 which they do this is called a monitoring strategy. Our
                 work has focused on classifying different types of
                 monitoring strategies and understanding how strategies
                 depend on features of the task and environment. We have
                 discovered only a few general monitoring strategies, in
                 particular periodic and interval reduction, and
                 speculate that there are no more. The relative
                 advantages and generality of each strategy will be
                 discussed in detail. The wide applicability of interval
                 reduction will be demonstrated both empirically and
                 analytically. We conclude with a number of general laws
                 that state when a strategy is most appropriate.",
