In this paper we demonstrate how principles of multiple objective decision making (MODM) can be used to analysis, design and implement multiple behavior based systems. A structured methodology is achieved where each system objective, such as obstacle avoidance or convoying, is modeled as a behavior. Using MODM we formulate mechanisms for integrating such behaviors into more complex ones. A mobile robot navigation example is given where the principles of MODM are demonstrated. Simulated as well as real-world experiments show that a smooth blending of behaviors according to the principles of MODM enables coherent robot behavior.
