OpenMAS is an open source multi-agent simulator based in Matlab for the simulation of decentralized intelligent systems defined by arbitrary behaviours and dynamics. This object orientated simulator can be used to create arbitrary scenarios with various agents and objectives. By assembling new agent definitions the user is able experiment with multi-agent systems in 2D or 3D, or simply use an existing agent from the object library. Here, a wide range of popular behaviours, collision avoidance and flocking routines are predefined. Once defined the user is then able to take advantage of a selection of automated analysis tools and generated figures.
