27

Some projects



NEDPIC
:
Distributed multi
-
agent negotiation
model for the intelligent parking trucks.


Objective


T
o
study and specify an integral model for the
intelligent truck parking
management.


It takes
into account the
constraints:


Drivers


Routes and rest areas


Dangerous
goods


It will
establish criteria for collective optimization and
traffic management.


To improve both the individual and collective
management of parking areas.


Collaboration between UJI and UV




28

Some projects




NEDPIC
: two subprojects


New methodology for the definition of ontologies
recommendations (W3C, OWL 2)


A new ontological description of the actors involved in
the ITP management will be created


An innovative multi
-
agent system to support the
development of ITP management strategies


Compatible with the current V2V and V2I
communication architectures.


A new negotiation protocol will be created


based on fuzzy decision algorithms and dynamic
prioritization criteria for each scenario (individual, section, or
network)

29

Some projects



DEMANAT
. A MAS environment for
automated negotiation in traffic.


Objectives


A new automated negotiation protocol to support
the management of no urban incidences


30

Some projects



CTMSimAgent
: Using Agents to improve
Traffic simulators


Collaboration between UJI and UWB


Objective


Improve the
Meteosafety

MAS with a traffic
forecast agent.


Real time and off line


Request


Good and Open source traffic simulator


1
st

approach


CTSIM simulator

31

Some projects




CTMSimAgent


Based on Cell Transmission Model (CTM)


Advantages


It takes about a minute to simulate one day’s operation
of a freeway.


Open source


Good results


Disadvantages


Needs
Matlab


Only simulates a single freeway (with various on
-
ramps
and off
-
ramps)


i.e. the simulation for a road network
is not supported.

32

Some projects




CTMSimAgent


Implementation


Java


Jade MAS platform


Agent


It
controls
CTMSim

and
Matlab

with a wrapping M
-
script


It
uses
JMatIO

for work with
Matlab

files


The whole simulation process (input, process and
results) are in the agent


It is quite simple and independent


The input parameters could be provided by
meteosafety

agents


33

Some projects




CTMSimAgent
: Testing the agents.

35

Some projects



CTMSimAgent


Results are positives


Traffic simulation results are similar to AIMSUM
simulator results.


Using
CTMSimAgents

a road network could be
simulated


It could be integrated in other MAS platforms, like
Meteosafety


A paper for a conference/journal is being
prepared.
