Revealing the features of the intelligent agent and its interactive behavior with complex environments whose events cannot be expected is a source of interest for researchers. What we will put in the hands of the interested person is to review key concepts in the design and implementation of test environments, noting the importance of the testbed, in addition to the knowledge bases required by these designs, presenting the definition of the intelligent agent and its features to be disclosed within the testbed. As for the types of test beds and their features, they have an important aspect in these papers.
