Applet Bots

Welcome to Applet Bots, a multi-agent environment simulation project started by Erik Rasmussen. The intial goal in this project was to create a two-dimensional environment for virtual robots (called "agents") to wander around in and perform tasks based on simple algorithms.

The rules are as follows:

The final goal is to have some kind of learning AI bots playing a game similar to soccer or capture the flag or something.

Inspiration for this project has come from RoboCup, Boids, and the Swarm Development Group.
