Implementation of Generic Steering Algorithms for AI Agents in Computer Games

Mateusz Modrzejewski , Przemysław Rokita


This paper proposes a set of generic steering algorithms for autonomous AI agents along with the structure of the implementation of a movement layer designed to work with said algorithms. The algorithms are meant for further use in computer animation in computer games - they provide a smooth and realistic base for the animation of the agent's movement and are designed to work with any graphic environment and physics engine, thus providing a solid, versatile layer of logic for computer game AI engines. Basic algorithms (called steering behaviors) based on dynamics have been thoroughly described, as well as some methods of combining the behaviors into more complex ones. Applications of the algorithms are demonstrated along with possible problems in their usage and the solutions to said problems. The paper also presents results of studies upon the behaviors within a closed, single-layered AI module consisting only out of a movement layer, thus removing the bias in icted by path�nding and decision making.
