Abstract

Straightforward approaches to team coordination with the expressive power of finite state automata are doomed to fail under a wide range of heterogeneity due to the combinatorial explosion of states. In this paper we propose a coordination scheme based on operational semantics, which allows an extremely compact and modular way of specifying soccer-robot team behaviors. The capabilities of our approach are demonstrated on two examples, which, though just being simple demo implementations, perform very well in a simulator tournament.

Keywords: protocols, operational semantics, multi-agent systems, coordination, conversation policies, conversation policies, conversation policies
