This book presents a framework for communication intensive autonomous agents inspired from the immune system. With the rapid increase of computational power and networking technology similarity between computer and biological systems may now practically work. The framework presented fills the need to guide the implementation of such a "biological" system. It is described in detail focusing on the field of diagnosis and control. Several sample applications and simulations are presented.
