Extending the RoboCup Rescue to Support Stigmergy: Experiments and Results

Fernando dos Santos, Gabriel Rigo da Cruz Jacobsen, Carlos Alberto Barth
2013 Revista de Informática Teórica e Aplicada  
We extended the RCR to enable the use of stigmergy by the agents.  ...  In this model agents use indirect communication (communication through the environment) in order to coordinate actions.  ...  We have extended the RCR to incorporate stigmergy. The agents can now drop and sense pheromones in the environment, enabling the formation of pheromone trails and so, the use of stigmergy.  ...

Standing on the shoulders of ants

Aiden Charles Dipple
2011 Proceedings of the 20th international conference companion on World wide web - WWW '11  
Stigmergy is a biological term used when discussing insect or swarm behavior, and describes a model supporting environmental communication separately from artifacts or agents.  ...  A significant contribution from this research would be to create a model of Web stigmergy, identifying virtual pheromones and their importance in the collaborative process.  ...  4) Does creating the signal unintentionally introduce an emergent communication which is vital to the grand purpose (i.e.: an implicit communication)?  ...

Combining stigmergic and flocking behaviors to coordinate swarms of drones performing target search

Mario G. C. A. Cimino, Alessandro Lazzeri, Gigliola Vaglini
2015 2015 6th International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and Applications (IISA)  
For this purpose, it is challenging to investigate the use of biologically-inspired mechanisms.  ...  In this paper, we present a novel and fully decentralized model for target search, and experiment it empirically using a multi-agent simulation platform.  ...  In our approach, stigmergy and flocking are two emergent behavioral patterns which should work in conjunction with other basic behavioral patterns of the drone, such as obstacle and boundary avoidance.  ...

Internet of Intelligence: The Collective Advantage for Advancing Communications and Intelligence [article]

Rongpeng Li, Zhifeng Zhao, Xing Xu, Fei Ni, Honggang Zhang
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Meanwhile, we propose a stigmergy-based federated collective intelligence and demonstrate its achievement in a simulated scenario where the agents collectively work together to form a pattern through simple  ...  Consequently, benefiting from the advancement in communication technology and AI, we boldly argue that the conditions for collective intelligence (CI) will be mature in the 6G era and CI will emerge among  ...  On the other hand, compared to centralized training approaches, federated learning is a de-centralized training approach which enables to collaboratively learn a machine learning model while keeping all  ...

2009 IFAC Proceedings Volumes  
This paper proposes a new interpretation of stigmergy, where cooperation between production actors is achieved thanks to attributes (informational pheromones) attached to products.  ...  Agent-oriented components which implement it are presented, and then applied on an experimental platform.  ...  Staff agents are present in the platform to enable customers to configure and generate production orders (i.e. product agents).  ...

ANT: Agent Stigmergy-Based IoT-Network for Enhanced Tourist Mobility

Pablo López-Matencio, Javier Vales-Alonso, Enrique Costa-Montenegro
2017 Mobile Information Systems  
In this work, we propose ANT, a network of agents which exchange information in a stigmergy-based fashion.  ...  We have applied ANT to a tourist mobility scenario, where both people and things (events, restaurants, performances, etc.) participate. ANT has achieved notable success in this example case.  ...  A systematic approach of stigmergy can resolve a complex problem via the single action of agents [7] . In our case, the visitor performs a tour carrying a software agent (e.g., on a smartphone).  ...

2013 Sensors  
More specifically, in the system, the first level of processing is managed by marking agents, which release marks in a sensing space, according to the rowers' motion.  ...  The accumulation of marks enables a stigmergic cooperation mechanism, generating collective marks, i.e., short-term memory structures in the sensing space.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank Kyle J. Lauersen for critical editing of the manuscript. Conflicts of Interest The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...
