Less personnel and the introduction of more complex systems on board of future navy vessels requires innovative systems to support the crew in making optimal command decisions. These decisions should result in an allocation of available resources that maximizes the probability to achieve the set of mission goals, provided the external and...

Computational agents based upon the belief-desire-intention (BDI) architecture generally use reactive rules to trigger the execution of plans. For various reasons, certain plans might be preferred over others at design time. Most BDI agents platforms use hard-coding these preferences in some form of the static ordering of the reactive rules, but...

In this work, the novel algorithm Bayesian Dynamic Programming Optimization Procedure (B-DPOP) is presented to solve multi-agent problems within the Distributed Constraint Optimization Problem framework. The Bayesian optimization framework is used to prove convergence to the global optimum of the B-DPOP algorithm for Lipschitz-continuous...

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) with acceptable performance are becoming commercially available at an affordable cost. Due to this, the use of drones for real-time data collection is becoming common practice by individual practitioners in the areas of e.g., precision agriculture and civil defense such as fire fighting. At the same time, as UAVs...

We investigate the hypothesis that long-term memory in populations of agents can lead to counterproductive emergent properties at the system level. Our investigation is framed in the context of a discrete, one-dimensional road-traffic congestion model: we investigate the influence of simple cognition in a population of rational commuter agents...

Human-agent teams exhibit emergent behavior at the team level, as a result of interactions between individuals within the team. This begs the question how to design artificial team members (agents) as adequate team players that contribute to the team processes advancing team performance, resilience, and learning. This paper proposes the...

Human-machine teaming (HMT) is a promising paradigm to approach situations in which humans and autonomous systems must closely collaborate. This paper describes SAIL, a software framework for implementing HMT-concepts. The approach of SAIL is to integrate existing autonomous systems in a framework, that serves as a social layer between...

DCOP (Distributed Constraint optimization Problem) is a framework for representing distributed multi- agent problems. However, it only allows discrete values for the decision variables, which limits its application for real-world problems. In this paper, an extension of DCOP is investigated to handle variables with continuous domains....

This paper concerns multi-agent models predicting Twitter trends. We use a step-wise approach to develop a novel agent-based model with the following properties: (1) it uses individual behavior parameters for a set of Twitter users and (2) it uses a retweet graph to model the underlying social network structure of these Twitter users to predict...

For the built environment it is envisaged that in the near future the total annual heat demand could be covered by renewable sources generated within the built environment. More and more devices, such as heat pumps and solar collectors will enable a sustainable and distributed generation of heat. Centralized climate management systems are...

When considering intelligent agents that interact with humans, having an idea of the trust levels of the human, for example in other agents or services, can be of great importance. Most models of human trust that exist assume trust in one trustee is independent of trust in another trustee. The model introduced here addresses so-called relative...

Whereas other smart grid field trials optimize for a single objective, PowerMatching City phase 2 demonstrates that multiple objectives can be achieved in a coordinated virtual power plant. A system that incorporates both consumer community proposition incentives and trade dispatch incentives (as well as end-user comfort) was designed,...

In the military, Command and Control Information Systems (C2ISs) are used for issuing commands to subordinate units. In training or decision support, simulations are used instead of live military forces. The Coalition Battle Management Language (C-BML) is currently being developed as an interface language between C2ISs, simulations and robotic...

In the near future an increase of both thermal grids and sustainable suppliers of heat with intermittency behavior, connected to these heat grids, is expected. For smart operation this challenges the current centralized management systems. To deal with this and to optimize cost and energy efficiency a multi-agent approach is proposed, which to a...

Using staff personnel for playing roles in simulation-based training (e.g. team mates, adversaries) elevates costs, and imposes organizational constraints on delivery of training. One solution to this problem is to use intelligent software agents that play the required roles autonomously. BDI modeling is considered fruitful for developing such...

In this paper we focus on explaining to humans the behavior of autonomous agents, i.e., explainable agents. Explainable agents are useful for many reasons including scenario-based training (e.g. disaster training), tutor and pedagogical systems, agent development and debugging, gaming, and interactive storytelling. As the aim is to generate for...

The success of the missions of naval ships depends highly on the availability of sensor, weapon, and command systems. These systems depend on support systems such as chilled water systems and electrical power systems. Disturbances caused by technical problems or battle damage may result in deterioration or failure of the support systems....

We present a fast and efficient method to derive and apply natural colors to nighttime imagery from multiband sensors. The color mapping is derived from the combination of a multiband image and a corresponding natural color reference image. The mapping optimizes the match between the multiband image and the reference image, and yields a...
