Agent Based Framework for Modeling Operations at Isolated Signalized Intersections

An agent-based model of intersection control is presented. Drivers make payments to movement managers so that they can pass through the intersection. Movement managers collect fees from arriving drivers, receive voluntary contributions from those same drivers, and participate in a bidding process overseen by the municipality which determines which movement mangers get to discharge vehicles. Winning movement managers get to discharge vehicles from their queues for the duration of time associated with the win. A realization of the model is presented to illustrate these ideas. It involves two approaches, arriving drivers, two movement managers, and a municipality. The movement managers control the conflicting one-way traffic streams. They determine what bids to submit given the status of the system at each point in time, recalibrate those strategies based on past experience with their use, forecast the performance of those strategies, take actions based on those analyses, and then repeat the process in each time step as the simulation unfolds.
