Transport systems of the future have to be flexible and adaptive in order to cope with failures and unexpected disturbances. Agent technology provides a good framework for handling with dynamics in large complex systems, using distributed control of the system increasing flexibility and enhancing fault tolerance. This paper researches how software agents supported with ontologies can improve the efficiency of transport systems. An algorithm for the transport system reconfiguration by changing… CONTINUE READING
