Abstract
Incorporating autonomy and intelligence into virtual worlds to build an engaging virtual environment for applications such as serious games is becoming more desirable. There are challenges in integrating these systems including concerns with synchronization, communication, monitoring, efficiency, and control. This paper presents an approach to integrating a virtual world engine with a multiagent system platform through the creation of an interface between them. We show the feasibility and effectiveness of the approach through developing agents controlled non-player controlled characters (NPCs) in Open Wonderland and pur-poseful communication channels among agents using Jason AgentSpeak.
