LANE CHANGING MODEL WITH EARLY COMMUNICATION OF INTENTIONS

Tomoki Takasago, Kazuko Takahashi

Abstract

This paper describes the modeling and simulation of traffic flow with lane changing based on inter-vehicle communications. We regard vehicles as autonomous agents, and construct a simple traffic model in which some agents change lanes. We propose a new method for an agent to change lanes in which it tells the neighboring agents its intention beforehand, shares information with them, and determines the lane change time in cooperation with the other agents. The result of simulating this model showed that the early communication of intentions is effective in avoiding traffic jams and supporting smooth transportation.
