Luis Enrique Cortés Berrueco: Driver interactions may optimize traffic flow

In the last year three computational models for the study of the evolution of cooperation were studied. It was shown how game transitions may occur depending of some parameters within the models and it was also explained how agents adapt to these transitions by individually choosing their attachment to a cooperative attitude. Aiming for the development of a traffic model for studying the impact of drivers’ interactions a multi-agent version of the LAI traffic model was implemented and studied. With the previously obtained knowledge, a merging model is being constructed. This is still work in progress, but already with some promising and interesting results.
