Abstract
When developing a Multi-agent systems (MAS) we need, among others, to bulit agent architecture together with some decision algorithms and communication protocols. Before such systems are realised in a real world, we should sufficiently test and verify their behaviour. The presented text describes a new approach to building artificial agents and MASs using the methodology of model-based design. In this methodology some models are used for testing the behaviour of particular elements as well as for testing the behaviour of the system as a whole - in both cases by simulation. Our aim is to develop a tool that would allow model-based design of systems with artificial agents. For this reason we have been building an application called Tool for Multi-Agent System Simulation (T-Mass) which is aimed at model-based development. As a part of the tool we also developed a language called Agent Low-Level Language (ALLL), by which agents' behaviour is controlled.
