Recently, there have been many studies on Multi-agent Reinforcement Learning (MARL) in which each autonomous agent obtains its own control rule by RL. Here, we hypothesize that different agents having individuality is more effective than uniform agents in terms of role differentiation in MARL. We have previously proposed a promoting method of role differentiation using a waveform changing parameter in MARL. In this paper, we confirm the effectiveness of role differentiation by introducing the waveform changing parameter into a state space filter through computational examples using “Pursuit Game” as a multi-agent task.
