Simulation has played an important role along the years to predict systems' behaviour before their deployment. In the case of self-organising mechatronic systems simulation tools can help researchers and practitioners understanding the full potential of the solution as well as its underlying limitations. Self-organising mechatronic systems have passed a(More)
This article describes the first version of a tool designed to infer the network characteristics of JADE-based multiagent systems. The rationale behind the tool is that systems in general and multiagent system in particular, often have some hidden dynamics that contribute to the emergence of desired and undesired characteristics.
