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 this 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, and managed - both at micro and at macro level - employing techniques of autonomous agents.

Main topics:

  • agent-based applications in traffic, transportation, and logistics
  • agent-based approaches to modelling driver behaviour
  • coordination in multiagent transportation systems
  • agent-based simulation of transportation systems
  • intelligent peer-to-peer transportation systems
  • mobile devices and agents in transportation systems
