Abstract

Collective Adaptive Systems (CAS) are heterogeneous populations of autonomous task-oriented agents that cooperate on common goals forming a collective system. This class of systems is typically composed of a huge number of interacting agents that dynamically adjust and combine their behaviour to achieve specific goals. Existing tools and languages are typically not able to describe the complex interactions that underpin such systems, which operate in a highly dynamic environment. For this reason, recently, new formalisms have been proposed to model CAS. One such is Carma, a process specification language that is equipped with linguistic constructs specifically developed for modelling and programming systems that can operate in open-ended and unpredictable environments. In this paper we present the Carma Eclipse plug-in, a toolset integrated in Eclipse, developed to support the design and analysis of CAS.
