This paper proposes a bimodal urban traffic control strategy based on a multi-agent model. We call bimodal traffic, a traffic which takes into account both private vehicles and public vehicles such as buses. The objective of this research is to improve global traffic, to reduce bus delays and to improve bus regularity in congested areas of the network. In… (More)
The development of surface public transportation networks is a major issue in terms of ecology, economy and society. Their quality in term of punctuality and passengers services(regularity between buses) should be improved. To do so, cities often use regulation systems at junctions that grant priority to buses. However, most of them hardly take into account… (More)
This paper proposes a bimodal urban traffic control strategy based on a multi-agent model. We call bimodal traffic a traffic which takes into account private vehicles and public transport vehicles such as buses. The objective of this research is to improve global traffic and reduce the time spent by buses in traffic jams so that buses cope with their… (More)
Urban congestion is a major problem in our society for quality of life and for productivity. The increasing communication abilities of vehicles and recent advances in artificial intelligence allow new solutions to be considered for traffic regulation, based on real-time information and distributed cooperative decision-making models. The paper presents a… (More)
