The purpose of this demo is twofold. On the one hand, we present a novel problem that has much potential for multi- agent research. This is the problem of allowing a team of UAVs with limited communication range to autonomously coordinate to service requests so that the overall time to service requests is minimized. On the other hand, we describe the main features of MAS-Planes, a simulation environment specifically geared towards testing coordination algorithms for that coordination problem.
