Embedding a Multi-agents Collaboration Mechanism into the Hybrid Middleware of an Intelligent Transportation System

Steven K.C. Lo and Huan-Chao Keh

Even if wireless networks and mobile computing technologies have comprehensively developed in recent years. Letting people extract information anywhere at anytime is the goal of this development. But in the telematics domain, the drivers can obtain road information through radio or certain in-car equipment, there is still a wide gap with regard to the synchronization of this information with actual road conditions. In the absence of adequate information, drivers often react to conditions with behaviors that do not contribute to their own driving goals but rather cause more complicated traffic conditions. Therefore, this study employs a process known as multi-agent collaboration. Information exchanged between the features and established mutual communication and collaboration mechanisms is applied in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). By allowing drivers to have distributed communication with other vehicles to share driving information, collect information and/or submit their own reasoned driving advice to other drivers, many traffic situations could effectively be improved and the efficiency of the computing processes could be improved through distributed communication. This study proposes an architecture design for middleware that includes vehicle information, navigation, announcements and communication which could prove to be a more convenient and efficient intelligent transportation system.
