TOWARDS AN AGENT FRAMEWORK FOR A PASSENGER TRANSPORTATION VIRTUAL ENTERPRISE

Claudio Cubillos, Daniel Cabrera

Abstract

This work presents the first approach for obtaining a framework based on the agent technology for the passenger transportation problem, considering a virtual enterprise domain. The agent architecture obtained provides a baseline for the integration between end-users of the transport service and multiple transport operators affiliated to a virtual enterprise, which provides flexibility in the incorporation and leaving of transport operators. The participation of governmental organizations and active destinations within the system allows the virtual enterprise having additional information on potencial opportunities of business and assures to the users of the transport system a wider and more complete service search. The PASSI methodology has been used as base modelling methodology for leveraging the multiagent architecture.
