The application of an software agent-based computational technique that implements Extended Kohonen Maps (EKMs) for the management of Sensor-Actuator networks (SANETs) in health-care facilities. The agent-based model incorporates the BDI (Belief-Desire-Intention) Agent paradigms by Georgeff et al. EKMs perform the quantitative analysis of an algorithmic artificial neural network process by using an indirect-mapping EKM to self-organize. Current results show a combinatorial approach to optimization with EKMs provides an improvement in event trajectory estimation compared to standalone cooperative EKM processes to allow responsive event detection for patient monitoring scenarios. This will allow healthcare professionals to focus less on administrative tasks, and more on improving patient needs, particularly with people who are in need for dedicated care and round-the-clock monitoring. ©2010 IEEE.
