Driving innovations in manufacturing: Open Access research from DMEM

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by Strathclyde's Department of Design, Manufacture & Engineering Management (DMEM).

Centred on the vision of 'Delivering Total Engineering', DMEM is a centre for excellence in the processes, systems and technologies needed to support and enable engineering from concept to remanufacture. From user-centred design to sustainable design, from manufacturing operations to remanufacturing, from advanced materials research to systems engineering.

Abstract

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.
