This paper describes an agent-based service network architecture proposed for a real worldapplication for the infomobility sector. This sector demands that mobile users (i.e. roaming users usingmobile phones, PDAs, etc) have access to accurate real-time location-based services that are inherentlydistributed throughout the web. Such are traffic information, geo-reference, routing, or mapping servicesthat are usually offered as web services. Thus, there is the need for a service network for the infomobilitysector, which integrates electronic services for mobile users as well as it caters for servicespersonalization. This issue was addressed using agent technology in the context of the IST projectIm@gine IT. The overall system architecture and business model are presented along with a particularfocus on the multi-agent system which is the core component of the Im@gine IT system.
