Applying delegate multi-agent systems in a traffic control system

Abstract

Multi-Agent Systems have been proven to be a useful paradigm for solving complex coordination and control problems involving large numbers of autonomous entities interacting in a dynamic environment. Traffic Control is one such problem. In this report we present a novel software architecture based on "Delegate-MAS" that implements simplified traffic control in a pro-active manner by trying to predict and avoid road congestion. The report describes the development process and presents a proof-of-principle implementation to validate the approach.
