This work demonstrates the application of the distributed behavior-based approach [1] to generating a multi-robot controller for a group of mobile robots performing a clean-up and collection task. The paper studies a territorial approach to the task in which the robots are assigned individual territories that can be dynamically resized if one of the robots(More)
The \Spirit of Bolivia" is a robotic soccer team which demonstrates minimally comprehensive team behavior. By this we mean that each member of the team makes progress towards team goals, and obstructs progress of the opponent, by interacting constructively with teammates and in a sportsmanlike manner with opposing players.

DEMOS provides an environment that assists the management of discussions and decision making through the web, especially when involving a large population (e.g., a community using the web to debate about city issues). It is based on the integration of three well-proven methods of social research: the Delphi method, Survey techniques, and Mediation method.(More)
Our goal is to exploit the benefits of multi-agent systems so as to gain a super-linear increase in performance relative to that of a single robot. By this we mean that a team of n robots either performs a task more than n times “better” (depending on the task, faster, more thoroughly, more reliably) than a single robot could perform the task, or performs a(More)
