ADE — AN ARCHITECTURE DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT FOR VIRTUAL AND ROBOTIC AGENTS

VIRGIL ANDRONACHE, MATTHIAS SCHEUTZ
2006 International journal on artificial intelligence tools  
In this paper we present the agent architecture development environment ADE, intended for the design, implementation, and testing of distributed agent architectures. After a short review of architecture development tools, we discuss ADE's unique features that place it in the intersection of multiagent systems and development kits for single agent architectures. A detailed discussion of the general properties of ADE, its implementation philosophy, and its user interface is followed by examples
