In this paper, we propose a teamwork model based on the concept of a mental attribute called attitude. Our team model presents team as a collective abstract attitude, in which is embedded a novel way of solving problems and conflicts in our domain. We argue that this collective attitude is further decomposed into the individual attitudes of the agents towards various team attributes. We then evaluate the team problem solving behaviours of the agents in a simulated fire world using teams with and without different types of attitudes. The application and implementation of this model to a virtual fire world has revealed a promising prospect in developing team agents. © 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
