Abstract—The existence of advanced smart devices and related technologies such as pervasive computing, mobile wireless communications, sensor networks and agent technologies have supported the proliferation of smart spaces. In this paper, we present the design of “Bosthan”, a multi-agent-based simulation tool that manages resources consumption in multi-inhabitants smart spaces. Bosthan is built on the top of ActorNet mobile agent platform to simulate different smart space topologies with varying numbers of residents. It allows strategies for resolution of conflicts between mobile agents, and for preserving inhabitants’ anonymity and untraceability inside the smart spaces, to be studied. Bosthan will help us compare the efficiency of using mobile agents to allow smart spaces to act pro-actively and maintain anonymity and data privacy in multi-inhabitants environments.

Index Terms—Multi-agent Systems; Smart Spaces; Simulators; Mobile Agents.
