Abstract:


This paper presents a new behavior of autonomous moving multi-agents, whose agents stochastically move over a resource consisting of cells in accordance with transition probabilities, depending on other agents. We suppose interactions or coordination among agents such that an agent can not move to a destination cell occupied by agents more than the agents of a current cell. The first we show that a moving multiagent with an appropriate average moving speed is more stable than a moving multi-agent without average moving speed. Then the stability can be accelerated by giving appropriate moving speed for agents. The second result is that the resource utilization of a moving multi-agent with an appropriate average moving speed becomes higher than the resource utilization of a moving multiagent without average moving speed. Then the resource utilization can be accelerated by giving moving speed. The above results are based on both theory and experiments, and we present the optimal moving speed of the system-specific for the acceleration.
