This paper presents PyramidNet tool as a fast and easy way to develop Modular and Hierarchic Neural Network-based Systems. This tool facilitates the fast emergence of autonomous behaviors in agents because it uses a hierarchic and modular control methodology of heterogeneous learning modules: the pyramid. Using the graphical resources of PyramidNet the user is able to specify a behavior system even having little understanding of artificial neural networks. Experimental tests have shown that a very significant speedup is attained in the development of modular and hierarchic neural network-based systems by using this tool.
