Designed by the Department of Medical Physics


   

This project aims to design and develop teams of co-operating autonomous agents, which could generally be used to expand the action-horizon of humans in inaccessible industrial fluidic applications. Successful collective performance in these missions critically depends upon: (a) accurate environmental perception, (b) a real time decision making and action loop, (c) emergent goal directed social behavior. In order to meet these requirements, we:

(a) Propose a novel agent architectural design based on modular Spiking Neural Network, which will serve as a "blueprint" for agent manufacture

(b) Research direct/indirect communication mechanisms for collaborative societies formation, and agent to environment communication.

(c) Design and develop an accompanying Development Environment, which will facilitate the evolution of complex agent SNN architectures- multiagent societies, and the development of successive CAA generations.
