This paper presents a fusion between discrete-event systems specification (DENS) and intelligent tools from soft computing. DENS provides a robust and generic environrnent for modeling and simulation applications employing single workstation, distributed, and real-time platforms. Soft computing is a consortium of tools for natural intelligence stemming from approximate reasoning (fuzzy logic), learning (neural network or stochastic learning automaton), optimization (genetic algorithms and genetic programming), etc. The outcome of this fusion is what is called “Intelligent DENS,” called IDEVS here. IDEVS is an element of a virtual laboratory, called V-Lab®, which is based on distributed multi-physics, multi-dynamic modeling techniques for multiple platforms. This paper will introduce IDEVS and V-Lab® and a theme example for amultiagent simulation of a number of robotic agents with a slew of dynamic models and multiple computer work stations.
