An Agent-Based Simulation Model for Urban Traffic System

Ali Bazghandi, Ali A. Pouyan


In this paper, we propose a model for vehicle traffic based on multi-agent systems and account suppositions and its issues. Traffic is an ever-growing problem as population and the number of drivers around the world increase exponentially. Previously, fluid flow models have been used in an attempt to model traffic. Based on recent studies, only agent based models can accurately model a traffic scenario. This is because small perturbations could have a butterfly-like effect, which causes a rapid change in the entire system.
