INSIGHT: A Virtual Laboratory for Looking into Behavior-Based Autonomous Agents
This paper introduces a 3D simulation environment for experiments with behavior-based autonomous agents. The virtual laboratory INSIGHT allows the user to design and run a great variety of experiments in a time- and cost-saving manner. The peculiarity of INSIGHT is the visualization of the internal dynamics, thus the \inner life" of the agent can be made transparent to the user during the run. The virtual laboratory Veri able scienti c experiments require that they can be repeated independent from time and space. The experimenter needs to keep certain parameters at constant values while varying others systematically in order to study the e ects of those parameters on the whole system. Unfortunately, those requirements cannot be ful lled in experiments with physical agents. In general, it is impossible to run exactly the same experiment a second time. Di erent lighting conditions on di erent days or di erent times of day can lead to serious changes in the behavior of the agent. Th...
