This paper presents the first stage of research into a multi-agent complex environment, called “FlatLand” aiming at emerging complex and adaptive obstacle-avoidance and targetachievement behaviors by use of a variety of learning mechanisms. The presentation includes a detailed description of the FlatLand simulated world, the learning mechanisms used as well as an efficient method for comparing the mechanisms’ performance, robustness and required computational effort.
