redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers at MIT have developed a new system that combines simple control programs to enable fleets of robots or other “multiagent systems” to collaborate in extraordinary ways. Due to the difficulty of designing control programs for “multiagent systems” – groups of robots or networks of devices with different functions – engineers have typically restricted themselves to scenarios in which reliable information about...

Taking land-use models out of the lab for a test drive with the people who live the models gives scientists a new way to develop possible future scenarios. James Millington, a former post-doctoral researcher at Michigan State University's Center for Systems Integration and Sustainability (CSIS) and now a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at King's College in London, has paired the relatively new use of agent-based land-use modeling with follow-up interviews with the stakeholders in those...

Human teams aided by a software system can make decisions more accurately and quickly in time-stressed situations than teams of just people, according to the Penn State researchers who developed the new software. The researchers tested their software in a military command-and-control simulation which involved intelligence gathering, logistics and force protection. When time pressures were normal, the human teams functioned well, sharing information and making correct decisions about the...
