In this paper, we study target-oriented behavior. In particular, we study how such behavior is added to a wheeled mobile agent with restricted motion. For this purpose, we use a particle system. With it, we can capture and simulate the agent, its control technique, and the environment uniformly. Then, the advantage is that the complex motion dynamics is captured as emergent dynamics. As the main contribution we show by simulation that, in the presence of randomly moving attractor particles, a simple particle detector based approach is sufficient for an agent to locate the particle emitter on a landscape with dead-end and obstacles hindering the motion.
