Agents in Traffic and Transportation

An International Workshop Series

Aims & Scope

 

The domain of traffic and transportation is geographically and functionally distributed; its subsystems have a high degree of autonomy, and typically we need to deal with settings with a variety of dynamics including the real-time constraints. Consequently, many applications in this domain can be adequately modelled as autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. As a result of this modelling one could also meet the growing interest in making traffic and transportation more secure, efficient, resource-saving and ecological. The purpose of the Workshop Series on Agents in Traffic and Transportation workshop is to bring researchers and practitioners together in order to share their views on how large-scale complex transportation systems can  be modelled, simulated, controlled and managed - both at micro and at macro level - employing  techniques of autonomous agents.
