Previous: Collection of Energy Tokens
Under this scheme, when a cell issues an
et_collect instruction to collect energy tokens from the
environment, it first tries to collect spare tokens from its current
grid position. However, if the grid position does not contain
sufficient energy tokens, the cell then looks for other cells at the
same grid position or in one of the eight neighbouring grid
positions. If other cells exist in one of these nine locations, energy
tokens will be extracted from the Energy Token Store of one (or more)
of these (at random) until the cell has obtained the normal quota of
energy tokens for one execution of et_collect (as defined by
the global parameter number_of_energy_tokens_per_collect).
