MICE: Michigan Intelligent Coordination Experiment testbed

The Michigan Intelligent Coordination Experiment (MICE) testbed is a tool for experimenting with coordination between intelligent systems under a variety of conditions. MICE simulates a two-dimensional grid-world in which agents may move, communicate, and affect their environment. MICE is essentially a discrete-event simulator that helps control the domain and a graphical representation, but provides relatively few constraints on the form of the domain and the agents' abilities. Users may specify the time required by various activities, the constraints on an agents' sensors, the configuration of the domain and its properties, etc. Source code, documentation, and examples are included.
