Combined behaviors

Fig. 3.34 shows an agent combining different behaviors: wandering, wall following, obstacle avoidance, space-filling turns, to win a game.

Figure 3.34: Emergent Behaviors R. 5210008 displays different emergent behaviors in this match. In the first part of the game it uses a combination of wandering and obstacle avoidance strategies, cutting off the arena in small spaces (left). As the game progresses, a combination of tight turns and wall following help make the most out of a more confined situation (right) (black=agent, gray=human).
