A holonic architecture for the global road transportation system

In recent years the development of automated traffic systems has been gaining increasing attention, and a substantial amount of effort has been invested in trying to find a solution to problems associated to road transport. Among these problems are road accidents caused by human-related factors, such as tiredness, loss of control, a slow reaction time, limited field of view, etc. Another transport-related problem is that of loss of time which may be caused by a slow driving speed due to weather conditions, road conditions, visibility, traffic congestion, etc. In this paper, we present a distributed architecture and the underline distributed algorithm for solving the global road transportation system, which is being developed by several European Universities.
