Herding cows with JIAC V


In this article we report on the JIAC V team for the agent programming competition 2009, going through the different phases of development and describing the JIAC V agent framework. Based on an iterative approach, we identified and implemented different agent roles. While there is no explicit team concept, the agents cooperate by informing each other of their perceptions and intentions, which leads to emergent team behavior which very dynamically and flexibly reacts to the state of the game.
