In a highly connected world, widespread networking has imposed new needs that require new paradigms and new technologies. The mobile agent is an emerging technology that is gaining ground in the field of distributed computing for the processing and transfer of information on the network. In our previous article we study the mobile agent model which thanks to its autonomy, mobility and adaptability, can send and retrieve data in real time using a local and or distant interaction with other agents on the network. In this paper, we will discuss the case of the use of mobile agent model in a connected ambulance. This paper aims to give a brief description of the mobile agents model and illustrates some existing systems that use this model in telemedecine. Then we present the new concept of the ambulance of the future and our proposal of mobile agent model service in smart ambulance able to diagnose the patients condition and the appropriate service and data transmission to get an accurate response in real time.
