Urban Traffic Monitoring and Control as a Cyber-Physical System Approach
The paper presents an integrated system for Urban Traffic Monitoring and control conceived in the perspective of a Cyber Physical Approach. Traffic “actors” are defined as classes of agents, each of them with a set of possible behaviors and behavioral drivers. Some of the behaviors are dependent on the actual physical structure/ implementation of agents. Different levels of control can be defined with regard to the physical functioning context and the overall system will have a complex emergent behavior. At this moment of conception, traffic actors include mainly components of traffic infrastructure and respective control and monitoring units, but the design is open-system, so as to define also “vehicle” class.
