Agent-Based Delay Tolerant Networking: New Prospects for eHealth Applications?

Many applications require a highly connected network, such as the Internet, to operate. Unfortunately, this is not always possible. In some scenarios, devices are able to communicate to each other only once in a while, being unreachable most of the time. The nodes in this type of networks could use their peers to asynchronously forward information for them from node to node to any point of the network, even if this process take a long time waiting for the opportunity of transmitting the information. This type of networking is called DTN (Delay Tolerant Networking), and mobile agents can play a critical role in them by placing the routing decision making in the very messages, thus allowing a differentiated routing behaviour per application. In this talk we will introduce the topic, taking a medical emergency scenario as a case study, and discuss the prospects of this new technology for eHealth applications.
