The platform used for evaluating management of mega-agents is described in [1]. Other related
platforms are described in [2] [3] http://www.dmason.org/ and [4]
http://repast.sourceforge.net/repast_hpc.php .
Wireless sensor networks are similar to a distributed mega-agent platform in that they both want
to minimize messages over the network, avoiding client/server computing, and instead
implement distributed diffusion and distributed aggregation. Mobile agent based directed
diffusion in wireless sensor networks is discussed in [5].
There are many articles concerning collision avoidance, especially involving robots. Path
planning to avoid collisions also gets much interest in the literature. A resolution of the
concurrent access problem is addressed in this paper, however it is not deterministic [6].

Agent-based Modeling (ABM) – < TBD: same as IBM? >
DAI – Distributed Artificial Intelligence
Individual-based Modeling (IBM) – each agent has own set of internal state variables affected by
its own history, and also allow spatial locality in the dynamics. Rule-based behavior of
individual agents. These models very suitable for distributed parallel computing.
