Here we have collected a number of tools that will be useful to users of the Agent Simulation Software (please refer to the other projects' web pages for links to tools they use). Over the last few years, a number of tools have been developed, either as part of the competitions or as individual initiatives. You can find a brief description and links to their respective websites here:
- Rescue v0.49.9 - The complete RoboCup Simulation platform including all simulators, the rescuecore agent development toolkit, and the random map generator.
- JGIS Map Editor - tool to create and modify maps by generating nodes, roads, buildings. Also creates fire points and positions agents on the map. Includes import and export features.
- Map Generator - part of the Rescuecore agent development package (part of the simulator package). Allows the generation of random maps or creation of random scenarios on a given map.
- Rescue3D - provides 3D visualisation of the simulation as it runs. Also provides score graph and 2D view. Can be run on log files generated by the simulator. Compatible with v0.48 of the simulator and work is in progress in making it compatible with v0.49 (get in touch via the mailing list to participate in this effort).
- AutoRun - allows automated multiple sequential runs of the simulation. Useful tool for running experiments. Compatible with v0.48 of the simulator (more details on how to make it work with 0.49 will be posted soon).
- HITLAS (Human-In-The-Loop Agents) - tool to involve humans in simulations such that it is not required to make agent strategies be hard-coded in agents. It can also measure the performance of user interface and decision support system that humans use, as well as humans’ skills.
- Hinomiyagura - rescue simulation using real maps.
- SUMO (Simulation of Urban Mobility) - an open source, highly portable, microscopic road traffic simulation package designed to handle large road networks.
