In this paper, we describe an interface agent, two different route planning agents and a pilot study which examined whether these agents could support a team planning task. The MokSAF interface agent links an Artificial Intelligence (AI) route-planning agent to a Geographic Information System (GIS). The user specifies a start and an end point and the(More)
Intelligent aiding strategies were evaluated for a team planning task. The MokSAF interface agent links an Artificial Intelligence (AI) route planning agent to a Geographic Information System (GIS). Through this agent, the user specifies a start and an end point, and describes the composition and characteristics of a military platoon. Two aided conditions(More)
A Military-based distributed interactive simulation (DIS) such as ModSAF has been used for many years. Several problems of the DIS-based simulation to support a large and heterogeneous virtual simulation environments have been discovered (Stone, Zyda, Brutzman, and Falby 1996). To solve these problems, we propose an architectural multi-agent-based framework(More)
• Support the team as a whole In this paper, we describe the interactions between task characteristics and human agent interfaces in a team redezvous route-planning task. The agents include an interface agent and two different task agents that perform similar tasks. The MokSAF interface agent links an Artificial Intelligence (AI) route planning agent to a(More)
Terrain information supplies an important context for ground operations. The layout of terrain is a determining factor in arraying of forces, both friendly and enemy, and the structuring of Courses of Action (COAs). For example, key terrain, such as a bridge over an unfordable river, or terrain that allows observation of the opposing forces line of advance,(More)
Autonomous swarm algorithms and human-robot interaction (HRI) have both attracted increasing attention from researchers in recent years. However, HRI has rarely extended beyond single robots or small multi-robot teams. While one of the benefits of robot swarms is their robust capabilities and the ability of their distributed algorithms to deal autonomously(More)
