Abstract

Nowadays, urban environments suffer from recurrent traffic jam with associated side effects. Platoon system, a set of vehicle attach by virtual link, is one of answer. in order to cope with issues such as different platoon geometrics since several years, we’re seeing the multi-agent system as element of response to many problems. This paper to apply this concept for platoon vehicles system through an multi-agent model based on key layers. Thanks this solution, implemented as an agent which makes decisions depending only on its own perception where each vehicles is recorded, analysed, transform in car command and adapted to vehicle by a command filter.
