Abstract

Nowadays, multiagent architectures and traffic simulation agent-based are the most promising strategies for intelligent transportation systems. This paper presents a road supervision model based on fuzzy-multiagent system and simulation, called RoSFuzMAS. Thanks to agentification of all components of the transportation system, dynamic agents interact to provide real time information and a preliminary choice of advised routes. To ensure the model rationality, and to improve the route choice make decision, we propose to use a hierarchical Fuzzy inference including some pertinent criteria handling the environment as well as the driver behavior. A multiagent simulator with graphic interface has been achieved to visualize, test and discuss our road supervision system. Experimental results demonstrate the capability of RoSFuzMAS to perform a dynamic path choice minimizing traffic jam occurrences by combining multiagent technology and real time fuzzy behaviors.
