Emergent architecture in self organized swarm systems for military applications
Many sectors of the military are interested in Self-Organized (SO) systems because of their flexibility, versatility and economics. The military is researching and employing autonomous and swarming ground robots, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Water Vehicles, medical agents, and ‘Cybercraft’ security agents. The processes for effectively developing these systems are still in their infancy. Currently, little effort is focused on building simple agent rules with low-level SO systems communication in order to facilitate emergent behaviors. Note that only with the use of effective control structures can the full potential of these systems realized. Presented is an innovative new paradigm for developing SO-based autonomous vehicles. Using a formal design model, the Interactive Partially Observable Markov Decision Process, a full understanding of this SO domain is possible. With this design model and a focused effort on the minimization of computational and informational compl...
