Abstract:

Auctions and similar market-based mechanisms are decentralized methods that are a promising way for teams of agents to assign and re-assign tasks among themselves in dynamic, partially known and time-constrained domains. We report on the results of our project on the Analysis, Evaluation and Improvement of Sequential Single-Item Auctions for the Cooperative Real-Time Allocation of Tasks, where we designed efficient and effective auction mechanisms and analyzed their properties.
