Abstract:
Patrolling an environment involves a team of agents or robots whose goal usually consists in continuously visiting its most relevant areas as frequently as possible. For such a task, agents have to coordinate their actions in order to achieve their goal. In this paper, our agents are sensors, with a radius of a communication and sensory radius. In contrast to strategies that consider the environment to patrol known, we assume the unknown environment. According to the adopted strategy, we define at first, a behavior of the agents on the basis of a set of strengths or field of potential, then secondly we define the agents behavior as a descent of the pheromone gradient (i.e. moving towards the cells containing the less pheromone quantity). The simulation of these strategies allowed an evaluation of the worst and average idleness
