Real-time co-operative decision making & control systems

Ljubo B. Vlacic, Daniel I. Thomas, Joshue Perez
2011 2011 XXIII International Symposium on Information, Communication and Automation Technologies  
It examines the aspects of being co-operative and substitutable in the context of: (i) co-operative driving by driverless vehicles; and (ii) computer game play scenarios for collaborative and social interactions  ...  Learning and adaptability (and thus the ability of being co-operative) are important features of decision & control systems.  ...  This is because an extremum seeking process is often a sequential (multistage) process of defining: (i) the goal and its criteria of optimality; (ii) mutually exclusive constraints; and (iii) the methods  ...
