ABSTRACT
To coordinate ambulances for emergency medical services, a multiagent system uses an auction mechanism based on trust. Results of tests using real data show that this system can efficiently assign ambulances to patients, thereby reducing transportation time.
INDEX TERMS
multiagent systems, coherence and coordination, healthcare.
