Software Development

Our group has developed the following tools:

Artis

The Artis architecture is an extension of the blackboard model which has been adapted to work in hard real time environments. This architecture includes the use of well known techniques of Real Time Artificial Intelligence Systems.

Simba

Simba (SIstema Multiagente Basado en Artis) (Artis based Multi agent System ) constitutes a significant extension of the Artis agent architecture approach for realtime environments Simba is made up of a multi agent platform for real time agents with real time responsibilities and time bounded services.

Kiwi

Kiwi is a graphic application which displays tasks execution trace logs. It has been entirely written in Tcl/TK, which makes it very portable. Its main features are: impressive zoom, rich set of graphical elements, output to eps files, events driven navigation and full customizable colors.

Posix Trace

This package adds (most of) the tracing support defined in the POSIX Trace standard to Open RT-Linux 3.1. The POSIX Trace standard defines a set of portable interfaces for tracing applications.

Tourism Service

This application is a multi-agent system that offers tourism services to different users in a specific city including the capability to plan diferent activities in a specific day according to their preferences

DoE tool based on Soft Computing

A new Design of Experiments tool has been developed for the discovery and optimization of catalytic materials when exploring a high-dimensional space. Concretely, it is based on a new Soft Computing framework in which neural networks and a genetic algorithm are combined for optimizing the discovery of new materials. Considering the high temporal and financial costs required for synthesizing and empirically testing potential solid catalysts, the application of Soft Computing techniques in this field seems really interesting, as the number of experiments can be reduced.

JGOMAS: Game Oriented Multi Agent System, based on Jade

JGOMAS is an environment to develop and to run intelligent agents over simulated 3D worlds. Specifically, JGOMAS allows to run agents in different teams, which compete to achieve their own and team objectives. Those two teams compete in a capture-the-flag-like game, where one team defends its flag against the other team, which tries to capture it.

ARLIPS: A Real-Time Language for Integrated Production Systems

Arlips is a language for developing rule-based systems for real-time environments. Arlips and its pattern matching algorithm fulfill the necessary conditions for allowing their timing analysis. The Arlips compiler translates an Arlips rule-based system into an equivalent C program many times faster than Clips

SPADE: Smart Python multi-Agent Development Environment

SPADE (Smart Python multi-Agent Development Environment) is a Multiagent and Organizations Platform based on the XMPP/Jabber technology and written in the Python programming language. This technology offers by itself many features and facilities that ease the construction of MAS, such as an existing communication channel, the concepts of users (agents) and servers (platforms) and an extensible communication protocol based on XML, just like FIPA-ACL.

Thomas: MeTHods, Techniques and Tools for Open Multi-Agent Systems

Thomas is aimed to develop a multiagent system architecture that is suitable for the generation of virtual organisations in open environments, as well as a support platform that will allow these systems to be implemented.

Masev: Multiagent Systems Evaluation Framework

*Masev * is an evaluation framework that allows analyzing and comparing methods, techniques and environments for developing MAS. Moreover, Masev uses the analysis information to recommend the most appropriate method and tool to develop an specific application.

EMFGormas

EMFGormas is a new approach to model Service-oriented Open Multiagent Systems using the MDA Eclipse Technology. It offers a CASE tool based on an unified meta-model for engineering large-scale open systems in which the constituent entitites interact among them by means of services.

jART

The jART agent Platform is a software framework developed to integrate real-time agents with other agents without temporal restrictions

Andromeda

ANDROMEDA (ANDROid eMbeddED Agent platform) is an agent platform specifically oriented to embedded agents over the Android operating system. The agents developed inside this platform are based on the agent-&pi meta-model.

Ada Binding to AMQP

The Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) is an open standard for an interoperable asynchronous messaging protocol. The Ada Binding to AMQP allows applications built on top of it to be distributed over heterogeneous environments. In this sense, it increases the interoperability, portability, and flexibility of such applications. In this paper, we propose an Ada binding to AMQP. This binding has been implemented using Apache Qpid, an open-source implementation of the AMQP standard.

Gormas

GORMAS defines a set of activities for the analysis and design of Virtual Organizations, including the design of their organizational structure and their dynamics. With this method, all services offered and required by the Virtual Organization are clearly defined, as well as its internal structure and the norms that govern its behavior.

mWater

mWater is a Multi-Agent System (MAS) application that implements a market for water rights, including the model and simulation of the water-right market itself, the basin, users, protocols, norms and grievance situations

Magentix2

Magentix2 is an agent platform for open Multiagent Systems. Its main objective is to bring agent technology to real domains: business, industry, logistics, e-commerce, health-care, etc.
