ABSTRACT The present article describes the methodology for the development of Multi-Agent Robotic System MAD-Smart and are given some examples to show some of their characteristics. The methodology tries to give shelter for the phase of conceptualization, analysis, and design throughout the definition of a set of activities what can help to understand the problem to resolve, the end characteristics of the system and the role what every agent plays in the solution of the problem.

    ABSTRACT: This paper was aimed at exhibiting the real need for having good communication within multiple robots systems using MAD-Smart methodology. Such methodology consists of conceptualising, analysing and designing multiple robot teams by defining a set of activities. MAD-Smart assists developers in further understanding not only the problem to be solved but the final characteristics which a particular system must accomplish and the role played by each agent in resolving problems. This methodology has already been validated by implementing the SMART (robotic multiagent system) project, educational robotics: intelligent machines in education and sensory and perception models in robotic agents for material identification. MAD-Smart has been shown to be more relevant in handling agent roles than the agents themselves for a given communication model. This issue reflects this methodology´s degree of abstraction since a role defining as an abstract representation of high level behavioural allows generalising the best possible scenarios which can be found in a given multi-robot system.
