In an agent-based simulation, a plausible decision in a specific context cannot stay be valid in the face of the changing situation. Therefore, the result of the decision making process is mostly related to the agent's situational awareness and its adaptation to the new context and situation of the environment. A sound estimation of the situation requires a clean understanding of the operational domain, not only the data taken from sensors. In this paper, it is aimed to improve decision making…
