Hübner, M.; Lück, T.; Schnieder, E.:
Cooperative Control of Multi-Vehicle-Formations in Road Traffic by Means of Consensus Algorithm and Petri Nets.
12th IFAC Symposium on Transportation Systems, September 2009.


This contribution presents a new concept for traffic-flow-optimization by means of C2C-communication and decentralized vehicle-control using a multi-agent-approach. Initial results are shown for a vehicle-based control algorithm. An essential part of this controller is a standard-consensus-algorithm, where the topology of the vehicles' positions is modeled as a condition-event Petri net.
