Abstract

Abstract—Healthcare emergencies and large scale disasters are two of the most critic scenarios of the healthcare system. Such scenarios require a support that must be distributed, context-aware, reactive and autonomous. This paper presents an architectural approach for coordination based on the multi-agent technology. In the following, we will show how agents behaviour well fits these requirements and how can be efficiently applied to these problems. In this paper we propose a framework, called Ubimedic2, which enables the implementation of Multi-Agent Systems for emergency scenarios management. The framework is FIPA compliant and it is based on the BDI technology.
