CROS: The Cooperative Robotic Organization Simulator

The Cooperative Robotics Organization Simulator (CROS) allows users to test robot organization algorithms in a controlled environment. This simulator and its accompanying Organization Model was designed and developed at the Kansas State University Multiagent and Cooperative Robotics Laboratory as part of an NSF grant.

The Cooperative Robotics Organization Simulator and Organizational Model provides a sophisticated framework for testing algorithms and applications of multi-agent optimization and structuring. The model defines the agent organization structure, along with the system goals, while the simulator computes the results of the experiments in pseudo real-time.
