Agents and Multi-Agent System's Adaptability & Social Behavior

This research develops models and simulations for studying agents and multi-agent systems' adaptability and social behavior. The research was originated in the context of animal behavior, specifically the adaptive behavior of crayfish. It proceeds to include applications in simulation of autonomous agents, mobile robots, artificial agent society, and social behavior simulation such as crowd behavior simulation. A simulation environment, BehaviorSim, is developed (Figure 1). A mobile robot test bed is set up (Figure 2). Several projects are under development based on the simulation environment and the robot test bed.
