Course Project

Course: Introduction to Artificial Intelligence

Department: Computer Science (graduate)

Language: Python


Randomly generate mazes with obstacle density p. For each maze, randomly initialize a fire. The fire will spread according to a flammability rate q. Use 3 strategies to get your agent from start to goal. The agent's attempt is unsuccessful if the cell occupied by the agent catches fire or if the fire blocks the goal, leaving the agent no viable path. At each time step, the agent has the opportunity to move and the fire has the opportunity to spread. Compare the 3 strategies' average success rates at various dimensions and flammability rates.

Note: Code will be shared after the semester has ended to ensure academic integrity.
