A simulator for distributed intelligence
The set of custom-build simulation tools were developed in order to run agent-based system tests in distributed computing environments. It has been used to experimentally test the CAEDA Cognitive Architecture in tank-tracked robot search and rescue scenarios.
The HIVE simulation environment includes:
- A 3D graphical environment for complex environment tests, featuring a 3D physics, weather simulation and random maze generation.
- A 2D graphical environment for simplified environment tests.
- An intelligent agent API which can be implemented to test different agent designs.
- Scenario and map design tools for different problem domains such as predator-prey and search-and-rescue.
