This report deals with the implementation of a multi-agent system. The implementation is a realization of the theory about POMDP and I-POMDP. In the implementation agents are represented using Lego Mindstorm, Wii Remotes are used as a positioning system and graphical models are created using Hugin Expert. The system itself is programmed using conventional C++. Focus has been placed upon implementing a chosen scenario using the theory, and the issues that arise when doing so. Examples of these are: Attaining a viable data structure that will be able to efficiently represent the exponentially increasing amount of data in a policy tree. The creation of a transition function, takes the uncertainty of actions into account. The choice, representation and implementation of an environment that would normally be too large to support higher time horizons.
