Multiple, Cooperating, Simple Agents for the Area Coverage Problem

Jill D. Crisman

Many seemingly complex behaviors observed in animals are actually simple reactive behaviors to sensory stimulus. It is believed by many researchers that all motion in animals is activated by combinations of these low-level behaviors. Moreover, community activities, such as gathering in groups or cooperative searching for food has also been successfully demonstrated as using simple primitive behaviors. Many robotic tasks can be accomplished using the same types of simple reactive primitives.
