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.
