Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4295)


In this paper, the Multi Agent System (MAS) Architecture, GPS, GIS, and Wireless Communication technologies were discussed. New application architecture of complex vehicle Location Based Service (LBS), and Navigation and Intelligent Transportation systems based on the MAS architecture were proposed. The implementation and Web performance of this methodology on the urban garbage trucks management in the Shanghai Putuo district were introduced. The final system testing results were evaluated. And the future potentials of the MAS based approach to solve complex urban management problems and monitoring information network systems were prospected.
