The High-Level Communication Model for Multi-agent Coordination in the RoboCupRescue Simulator
In this article we will concentrate on the communication problems in a multi-agent system, operating within the ’RoboCupRescue’ Simulator system. To cope with the limited communication between the center and the agents in the field, we separate the communication in two layers that focus on synchronizing world models with different levels of detail, responsiveness and range. In this article we will explain the requirements and methods used in the high-level communication that distributes summaries of the current situation in different sectors of the map.
