This work evaluates and improves agent-based approaches for exploration of unknown terrain and finding (shortest) paths to a goal with an unknown location. This scenario is typically found in emergency incidents and for technically assisted search and rescue cases, e.g. when a building or a block of a city has been damaged by an earthquake and as a result, former maps are not valid anymore. In our approach we simulate the exploration of the unknown environment by agents that have different… CONTINUE READING
