—We investigate the problem of how to make a multi-robot system performing a cooperative task by inducing a set of emergent actions. We model the environment dynamics by considering some parameters that express the ability of each robot to perform its task. Thus, the members of a group of robots become aware of their ability to realize some tasks by simply(More)
Susceptibility of sheep to scrapie, a transmissible spongiform encephalopathy of small ruminants, is strongly influenced by polymorphisms of the prion protein gene (PRNP). Breeding programs have been implemented to increase scrapie resistance in sheep populations; though desirable, a similar approach has not yet been applied in goats. European studies have(More)
Since its origins, Artificial Intelligence has been faced with the challenge to control robot operations through the so called deliber-ative thinking paradigm. Robot actions are governed by a reasoning process which needs robots to acquire information from the environment to update their internal world model causing the failure to generate an useful action(More)
Cooperative control is a key issue for multirobot systems in many practical applications. In this paper, we address the problem of coordinating a set of mobile robots in the RoboCup soccer middle size league. We show how the coordination problem that we face can be cast as a specific coalition formation problem and we propose a distributed algorithm to(More)
