VizScript: Visualizing Complex Interactions in Multi-Agent Systems

Jing Jin, Rajiv T. Maheswaran, Romeo Sanchez, Pedro Szekely

We address the problem of users creating visualizations to debug and understand multi-agent systems. To expedite the process of creating visualizations, we have developed VizScript, a collection of tools, which combines a generic application instrumentation, a knowledge base, and simple scene definition primitives with a reasoning system . Using VizScript we were able to recreate the visualizations for a complex multiagent system with an order-of-magnitude less effort than was required in a Java implementation.
