The Phoenix project is an experiment in the design of autonomous agents for a complex environment. The project consists of a simulator of the environment, a basic agent architecture, and specific implementation of agents based on real-time techniques; the first two parts have been constructed, the third is on-going. The facets of Phoenix that facilitate real-time research are: a simulator parameterized for varying environmental conditions and instrumented to record behaviors, an agent architecture designed to support adaptable planning and scheduling, and methods for reasoning about real-time constraints.
