Easy Agent Simulation (EAS)

Java-based multi-agent simulation software

Contact persons: Lukas König

Research group: Effiziente Algorithmen

Publication date: 1 Januar 2011


EAS is a Java-based simulation platform, developed as part of a research project at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. It comes with a broad range of pre-developed simulation scenarios, ranging from virtual agents acting in abstract environments to agents with a spatial representation in 2D or 3D. It is built upon a novel architecture using a separate "plugin layer" to communicate between the simulation engine and the simulated model. This allows to flexibly add or remove non-simulation-specific functionality such as visualization, chart drawing, trajectory painting etc. Studies show that the architecture is well-suited to guide beginners quickly to simulations of various levels of complexity. (The according research paper and documentation can be found under "Files"; Javadoc is available for most core classes and methods.)
