The purpose of the model is to generate disaggregated traffic flow distribution of cyclists at the regional scale level. The model is fuelled by statistical and topographical data as well as by generalized assumptions derived from survey data on mobility behaviour. It results in emergent flow patterns at a high spatial and temporal level of detail.
This MAS simulates the traffic of Barcelona Eixample. Uses a centralized AI system in order to control the traffic lights. Car agents are reactive and have no awareness of the intelligence of the system. They (try to) avoid collisions.
The core algorithm is an agent-based model, which simulates travel patterns on a network based on microscopic decision-making by each traveler.
