Multi-Agent Look-Ahead Traffic-Adaptive Control

  title={Multi-Agent Look-Ahead Traffic-Adaptive Control},
  author={Ronald T. van Katwijk},
The objective of this thesis is to create a distributed, multi-agent, approach to traffic control. This PhD thesis’ focus is on the control of a network instrumented by traffic signals. A thorough literature study has been performed, reviewing the current state of the art in traffic signal control. On the basis of this literature survey, a taxonomy of existing systems was constructed. The design of a traffic-adaptive control system is as well a science as an art. Along the way compromises have… CONTINUE READING
