About Realization of Aggressive Behavior Model in Group Robotics
One of the actively developing approaches of group robotics systems creation is the use of social behavior models. Aggressive behavior is one of the underlying mechanisms forming social behavior. In this paper, the application of aggressive behavior concepts is considered by analogy with animal aggressive behavior that can be used for solving tasks of group robotics. As a role model, an ant – a true social insect – is proposed. It was shown that in aggressive behavior of ants, the numerical factor and imitative behavior play an important role. Agent’s aggressive behavior model depending on accumulated aggression and the number of other nearby agents is proposed. The results of computer experiments for territory defense tasks are presented. The results show that aggression is a stabilizing factor for an approximately equal number of agents in different groups. By an increase in group size, aggression becomes a way of capturing foreign territory.
