Turn in desired direction
Begin NetLogo code:
substitute-text-area-for cycle-duration 1 substitute-text-area-for columns: 71 maximum-angle 30 do-every cycle-duration [if my-desired-headings-count = 0 [stop] let maximum-turn maximum-angle let desired-heading my-desired-headings / my-desired-headings-count let desired-turn canonical-heading (desired-heading - my-heading) set my-next-heading my-next-heading + within-range desired-turn (- maximum-turn) maximum-turn set my-desired-headings 0 set my-desired-headings-count 0]
End NetLogo code
You can change the expression that computes the maximum amount that I turn on each cycle.
This uses the desired heading computed by other behaviours to determine how much it should turn in order to face in the desired direction. A maximum amount of turning per cycle is enforced by the call to within-range.
Turn in desired direction was implemented by Ken Kahn on 13 August 2010.
