Internet-of-Things-(IoT)-systems will pose new challenges for the simulation of such systems, like the dynamic entering of components during runtime and the huge heterogeneity of the components. Various existing approaches for the simulation of IoT-systems are described. Additionally a concept is presented, which meets the described challenges. To satisfy the heterogeneity each component is modelled individually in separate modelling tools. The concept utilizes a multi-agentsystem to simulate the communication between the different models and to enable them to be integrated during simulation time. With the presented concept it is also possible to integrate real components into the simulation.
