Abstract

We introduce a methodology to test autonomous agents described by means of utility state machines. In contrast with the classical approach for testing state machines, we will use other utility state machines as test. In fact, the machine playing the role of the test will be in charge of guiding the IUT so that it performs the operations (i.e. exchanges of resources) indicated by the specification.
