Simulation is an initial approach to determine the experiment feasibility, especially for a complex robotics environment. This paper give an overview of five simulation software for non-expert developers to quickly perform the multi-robots simulation. In the advanced robotics field, further research requires simulations, especially which involve multi-robots as to run quickly. There are many robotics simulation software exist. In this paper, we focus only on five simulation software, namely NetLogo, GAMA Platform, Webots, Player/Stage and V-REP. To distinguish the differences between this five tools, we made a comparison of general information and other criteria. Then, we rated them based on the criteria and user necessity. Therefore, the users can easily know which software is suitable for them to use.
