Conflicts in a Simple Autonomy-Based Multi-Agent System

F. Chantemargue, P. Lerena, and M. Courant

Our study shows that, in some situations, conflict can deliberately be left in an autonomy-based multi-agent system. Our work, supported by experimental results, has two major outcomes. First, it proves that conflict does not necessarily alter the global outcome of the system in a qualitative way. Second, it shows that it is possible to effect the way the global task is achieved by appropriately modifying the environment of the agents.
