Targeted drug delivery with the use of nanorobots, a yet mostly theoretical but very promising future concept, is anticipated to become a significant ally in cancer treatment. The way that nanorobot systems are currently envisaged by researchers is such that they exhibit autonomous and collaborative behaviour that can be uniquely captured by multi-agent systems. In this paper, we investigate this hypothesis by describing the process of formally modelling a simple agent-based system for a… CONTINUE READING
