An Autonomic System for Intelligent Truck Parking

Abstract

Traffic and road transport conditions are strongly influenced by the decisions of drivers. The more information they be provided better decisions about their behavior may take. This is especially important in the transport of goods, since drivers are subject to traffic laws about maximum driving time and minimum time rest. In this paper a multi-agent system for negotiated management of parking spaces in road rest areas is presented. This system dynamically adapts itself to the preferences and needs of the drivers of goods about parking requests. The system is shown to be robust to incidents regarding the closure of road rest areas and an increased volume of freight traffic. The results also show that the number of illegal parkings is reduced resulting in greater road safety.
