The RoboCupRescue Simulation project is a test bed for multi-agent systems research for disaster relief. However, researchers have to implement many types of algorithm and require a complicated procedure for experiments, which places a heavy burden on them. Therefore, we propose an environment that integrates an agent-development framework and an experiment-management system to support researchers.
