Cohort has contributed to a paper entitled “An Architecture to Integrate BDI Agents with a Simulation Environment” that has been accepted for presentation at the 7TH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON ENGINEERING MULTI-AGENT SYSTEMS (EMAS 2019) in Montreal at Concordia University the week of May 13th 2019. Authors of the paper are: Dr. Alan Davoust (Université du Québec en Outaouais), Patrick Gavigan (Carleton University), Dr. Cristina Ruiz-Martin (Carleton University), Guillermo Trabes (Universidad Nacional de San Luis, San Luis, Luis, Argentina), Dr. Babak Esfandiari (Carleton University), Dr. Gabriel Wainer (Carleton University), and Jeremy James (Cohort Systems Inc.).
The paper describes an early result from collaborative research funded by the Department of National Defence Canada. This research is the development of a simulation tool that supports investigation of human robot collaboration which is fundamental for the future deployment of collaborative robot teams that rely employ ‘human-on-the-loop’ supervision. The EMAS (Engineering Multi-Agent Systems) 2019 workshop encourages collaboration of researchers and practitioners interested in the theoretical and practical aspects of agents and Multi Agent Systems engineering. It is a held as a part of AAMAS (International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems). The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners to a single, high-profile, internationally forum for research in the theory and practice of Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent systems. AAMAS is the flagship conference of the non-profit International Foundation for Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (IFAAMAS).
