Abstract

A network infrastructure in a mass casualty incident rescue scenario is normally characterized by multiple of working domains scattered over a wide area. For mobile agent systems working in these networks, the management of agent platforms contributes to achieving fault tolerance and reliability. We employ a honey bee inspired approach for imposing a self-organizing mechanism on the colony of mobile agent platforms. This paper presents our approach as well as introduces some preliminary evaluations of the proposed mechanism.
