AbstractWe present a simulation system specially designed to simulate actions of autonomous agents in partially unpredictable environments. This system results from considering the problem of developing a simulation system for multiple agents without making any restrictive assumptions about the nature of the environment and about the cognitive behavior of agents. The use of the system allows to make experiments with various robot soft wares (e.g. with combinations of task and motion planning algorithms), to determine to what extent an agent architecture allows a robot to efficiently react to unexpected events, to compare multi-agent cooperation frameworks and to test the transient and asymptotic behaviors of agents having imperfect knowledge about their environment. Currently, the most advanced application concerns the use of centralized and distributed multi-robot planning and scheduling techniques in an office environment.
