Adaptive rules in emergent logistics (ARIEL): an agent-based analysis environment to study adaptive route-finding in changing road-networks
MetadataShow full item record
The delivery of supply in combat operations is very important and often results in success or failure of a mission. This activity, as well as other transportation problems, has traditionally been modeled using global optimization techniques, such as linear programming. However, the goal of this thesis is to examine the feasibility of an agent-based solution to study the movement of material through a road network. The requirement is to build an agent-based system that finds the optimal route through a given road network and is capable of adapting to disruptions introduced to the network and then find alternative routes through the network. The agents act from a local perspective, and can represent more realistically the decisions being made throughout the delivery process. This thesis implements an analysis environment for road networks and develops an agent-based model to build truck-driver agents that are capable of delivering supplies through a changing road network.
