A formation behavior for large-scale micro-robot force deployment

  title={A formation behavior for large-scale micro-robot force deployment},
  author={Donald D. Dudenhoeffer and Michael P. Jones},
  booktitle={Winter Simulation Conference},
Micro-robots will soon be available for deployment by the thousands. Consequently, controlling and coordinating a force this large to accomplish a prescribed task is of great interest. This paper describes a flexible architecture for modeling thousands of autonomous agents simultaneously. The agents' behavior is based on a subsumption architecture in which individual behaviors are prioritized with respect to all others. The primary behavior explored in this work is a group formation behavior… CONTINUE READING
