This paper presents the application of computer systems to provide distributed decision making for intelligent logistics using a communications system architecture enabled by a multi-band antenna system. This communication system architecture is described for a commercial vehicle application that is linked to off board databases for distributed decision making. The distributed decision making provides useful functions such as 1) need for servicing and location of the nearest service center with the necessary parts in stock, 2) routing and navigation and 3) load brokering and co-ordination. The paper references a U.S. patent that was granted prior to the introduction of the component sensor and communication technology which enable the overall system architecture to be practical. The paper also references a U. S patent for a multi-band antenna issued in 2006. These enabling technologies are described and referenced herein. Moreover recent progress in the development of distributed intelligent and multi-agent control systems is being published which will allow the realization of the communications system architecture.
