Abstract

Significant advances in wireless communication technologies and mobile devices have led to their widespread use. For example, the so-called Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), which encompass a wide range of advanced applications for transportation, have attracted a lot of attention. In this context, one could think that software agents, which can have properties such as intelligence and autonomy, are expected to play a key role. But is this the case? Are they being used in work related to ITS and/or vehicular networks? Could they really provide benefits? In this paper, we analyze the state of the art and draw some conclusions about the potential interest of mixing these two fields.
