Analyse et conception du leadership et de l’utilisation de la mémoire dans le simulateur PARIS

Abstract : My training period consists in completing a plot/herd simulator so as to make spatial memory working , and then to create a first operationnal complete prototype. The PARIS simulator models interactions between a meadow and a ruminant herd grazing it. In order to simplify this model, it was divided into three sub-models : the vegetation model manages vegetation dynamics, takes into account defoliations and provides to the animal model informations which it needs. This last sub-model updates animal physiological state during a simulation. Finally, the social model deals with interactions between animals. This part will be the center of my work. My work was broken up into several steps. Firstly, I analysed the code of the simulator as it was, installed a documentation with the freeware Doxygen and realized some modifications which improve legibility and optimize the program. Then I updated the “visionneuse” so that it can use current output files and dispay on screen more than one trajectory. To use it easily, I created a graphic interface. Lastly, I integrated the spatial memory into the simulator such it had been implemented. Then I modified it to make it more realistic. Each step has been modeled with the UML modeling language, before to be programmed under Linux whith the C++ language and the JAVA language for the “visionneuse” graphic interface. My work remains unfinished as we still need to add the forgetting and the exploration to the spatial memory. This should be done by the end of september.
