Abstract:

NetLogo is an open source and freely available software under the GPL license. It is an
agent-based simulation mainly developed in order to evaluate Ambient Intelligence (AmI)
scenario based on agents. Due to the highly dynamic properties of some critical areas like
airports, train stations, the software system that runs on sensors faces problems like user
mobility, service failure, resources, or goal changes. To cope up with these problems, such
system must sense the environment, and act on it, over time in pursuit of its own benefit. So
there is a need of special kind of software that should combine ubiquity, context-awareness,
intelligence, and natural interaction in an AmI environment. The kind of software that fits
with such requirements is Agent technology. Agents intend to reproduce human behaviour
through abilities such as autonomy, proactivity, adaptability, planning. NetLogo is made up
of agents that can follow instructions. NetLogo mainly comprises of four types of agents:
turtles, patches, links and the observer. Commands and Reporters will instruct agent wherein
command is an action, agent has to carry out and reporter is instructions for computing a
value which the agent uses, for reporting to the concerned module. NetLogo helps to adapt to
changes in the environment, to be autonomous, self-managed and to the user requirements
and needs.
