    Presentation Transcript
    1. Behavior

    2. Autonomous Characters • Self-Directed characters "puppets that pull their own strings" -Ann Marion

    3. Autonomous Characters • Acknowledgement Much of this material is taken from the work of Craig Reynolds. He maintains a web pages including a rich source of material of steering behavior and the consumate source on flocking. Also see: Steering Behaviors For Autonomous Characters by Craig Reynolds

    4. Three-Tier Hierarchy • Action selection goals and strategies “What to do” • Steering guidance / motion control “How to do it” • Locomotion movement generation “Getting it done”

    5.

    8. Seeking and Fleeing • Seeking and Fleeing Applet (Reynolds)

    9. Pursuing and Avoiding • Pursuing and Avoiding Applet (Reynolds)

    10. Separation: Avoid Collisions

    11. Alignment

    12. Flocking Demos • Flocking Applet (Craig Reynolds) • Fish Schooling (Steve Hughes) • Beach House (Ishihama Yoshiaki ) For more demos see Reynolds “Boids in Java”

    13. Do People Flock? Social psychologist’s report the people tend to travel as singles or in groups of size 2 to 5.

    14. Characteristics of Groups • Proximity • Coupled Behavior • Common Purpose • Relationship Between Members

    15. Moving Formations • Pairs: Side by side • Triples: Triangular shape

    16. Stationary Formations Stationary quintuple formed Moving pair approaches stationary triple

    17. Locomotion Model for Walking • Two Parameters • Speed • Combination of step length and step rate • Orientation • Head direction for forward walking

    18. Action Space Accelerate Accelerate Accelerate Turn Left No Turn Turn Right Coast Coast Coast Turn Left No Turn Turn Right Decelerate Decelerate Decelerate Turn Left No Turn Turn Right

    19. Distributed Preference Voting • Delegation of voters: Constraint Proxies • Proxies vote on each cell of the action space • Votes are tallied • Winning cell represents best compromise among competing interests

    20. Vote Tabulation Pursuit Point Tracking Maintain Target Velocity Inertia 1.0 Avoid Peds Maintain Formation Avoid Obstacles 1.0 1.0 Centering 4.0 2.0 5.0 2.0 Electioneer Winning Cell
