Abstract

This paper introduces a double multiagent architecture allowing the triage of victims in emergency scenarios and the automatic update of their medical condition. Gathering updated information about the medical condition of victims is critical for designing an optimal evacuation strategy that minimizes the number of casualties in the aftermath of an emergency. The proposed scheme, currently under development, combines Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), an Electronic Triage Tag and a double multiagent system (Agilla-JADE) to achieve a low cost, no infrastructure-based, efficient system. Initial results of the WSN roaming done by Agilla agents are presented.
