Using Agent-Based Tactics Models to Control Virtual Actors in VBS3

  title={Using Agent-Based Tactics Models to Control Virtual Actors in VBS3},
  author={Rick Evertsz and John Thangarajah and Nik Ambukovski},
The computer-based simulation of military tactics has largely involved the use of platform-dependent scripting resulting in behaviour that is limited, and difficult to debug and reuse. The Tactics Development Framework (TDF) addresses these shortcomings by providing design-level support for tactics modelling. Its integration with VBS3 is reported here.

Agent Oriented Modelling of Tactical Decision Making
TDF (Tactics Development Framework), a tactics modelling methodology and tool that supports agent-oriented structural modelling of tactics and related artefacts including missions, storylines, goals and plans, was developed and was evaluated using a simple scenario in the autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles domain.
JACKTM Intelligent Agents: An Industrial Strength Platform
This paper argues that JACK meets requirements such as familiarity, scalability and integratibility which make it suitable for adoption by industry, and describes interesting features of JACK such as the use of capabilities for structuring agents, and the approach to teamwork which allows hierarchical team structures.
Prometheus design tool
The Prometheus Design Tool is a graphical editor which supports the design tasks specified within the Prometheus methodology for designing agent systems and ensures consistency between various parts of the design.
BDI Agents: From Theory to Practice
This paper explores a particular type of rational agent, a BeliefDesire-Intention (BDI) agent, and integrates the theoretical foundations of BDI agents from both a quantitative decision-theoretic perspective and a symbolic reasoning perspective.
