Coordination and Multi-Tasking Using EMT

Rabinovich, Zinovi, Pochter, Nir and Rosenschein, Jeffrey S. (2008) Coordination and Multi-Tasking Using EMT At The Twenty-Third National Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI 2008). 13 - 17 Jul 2008. (Submitted).

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


We introduce a multi-model variant of the EMT-based control algorithm. The new algorithm, MM-EMT, is capable of balancing several control tasks expressed using separate dynamic models with a common action space. Such multiple models are common in both single-agent environments, when the agent has multiple tasks to achieve, and in team activities, when agent actions affect both the local agent’s task as well as the overall team’s coordination. To demonstrate the behaviour that MM-EMT engenders, several experimental setups were devised. Simulation results support the effectiveness of the approach, which in the multiagent scenario is expressed in theMM-EMT algorithm’s ability to balance local and team-coordinated motion requirements.
