Collective construction of numerical potential fields for the foraging problem

  title={Collective construction of numerical potential fields for the foraging problem},
  author={Olivier Simonin and François Charpillet and Eric Thierry},
We consider the problem of deploying a team of agents (robots) for the foraging problem. In this problem agents have to collect disseminated resources in an unknown environment. They must therefore be endowed with exploration and path-planning abilities. This paper presents a reactive multiagent system that is able to simultaneously perform the two desired activities exploration and path-planning in unknown and complex environments. To develop this multiagent system, we have designed a… CONTINUE READING
