Quagents: Intelligent Agents in a Quake World

Quagents are intelligent software agents that live in a simulated world provided by the Quake II game engine. These agents have basic perceptual and motor abilities, such as being able to tell what is directly in front of them or being able to move ahead or turn around. These basic skills can be used by higher-level control and/or reasoning processes to perform a variety of real-world tasks. The goal of the project is to use the Quagents as a testbed for research into robotics, multi-agent systems, human-agent communication, and team coordination.
