Abstract

This work studies the foraging behavior of Meerkat and the parameters for simulating Meerkats foraging behavior are designed. The designed parameters include the number of agents, number of groups, range of perception and number of foods. However, there are not many works done on Meerkats therefore, survey form is used in designing these 14 sets of parameters. Only the choices that have a higher percentage is focused on designing the 14 sets of parameters for the simulation. The performance of each 14 sets of the simulation are compared based on the result obtained from the simulations such as the highest mean quality of food can be achieved, and the time required to reach the highest mean quality of food. The higher the mean quality the better the performance. The smaller the number of ticks (simulation second) required to reach the highest mean quality the better the performance
