Modeling Agents and their Environment: The Physical Environment

By: James Odell, H. Van Dyke Parunak, Mitchell Fleischer, Sven Brueckner

Abstract

Without an environment, an agent is effectively useless. Cut off from the rest of its world, the agent can neither sense nor act. An environment provides the conditions under which an entity (agent or object) can exist. It defines the properties of the world in which an agent will function.
