This work presents a generic domain approach for programming ubiquitous Multi-Agent Systems using Jason framework and ARGO in electronic prototypes. The approach aims to provide a ready-to-use platform that is heterogeneous and independent from the hardware selected to be used in several domains. In order to validate the approach, two examples in distinct domains and based on case studies were implemented, prototyped and discussed. The results show that the approach is adequate to develop such kind of systems.
