AbstractThis article presents a new approach for guiding a group of people using an adaptive multi agent system. For the simulations of the group of people we use social forces, with theses forces human motion is controlled depending on the dynamic environment. To get the group of people being guide we use a set of agents that work cooperatively and they adapt their behavior according to the situation where they are working and how people react. For that reason, we present a model that overcomes the limitations of existing approaches, which are either tailored to tightly bounded environments, or based on unrealistic human behaviors. In particular we define a Discrete-Time- Motion model, which from one side represents the environment by means of a potential field, and on the other hand the motion models for people and robots respond to realistic situations, and for instance human behaviors such as leaving the group are considered. Furthermore, we present an analysis of forces actuating among agents and humans throughout simulations of different situations of robot and human configurations and behaviors. Finally, a new model of multi-robot task allocation applied to people guidance in urban settings is presented. The developed architecture overcomes some of the limitations of existing approaches, such as emergent cooperation or resource sharing.
