Interaction between intelligent agent strategies for real-time transportation planning

Martijn Mes, Matthieu van der Heijden, Peter Schuur
2011 Central European Journal of Operations Research  
The problem involves the allocation of jobs to a fixed set of vehicles which might belong to different collaborating transportation agencies.  ...  A recently proposed solution methodology for this problem is the use of a multi-agent system where shipper agents offer jobs through sequential auctions and vehicle agents bid on these jobs.  ...  The idea of an auction-based allocation mechanism raises a problem: since jobs arrive in real-time, an optimal allocation can only be derived afterwards, i.e., when all jobs are known.  ...
