Modelling Queues in Transportation Networks Using P Systems
This paper proposes variant of P system for passenger flow modelling in transportation networks. Mobile membranes are used as vehicles, which enable transportation of passengers within the network. Performance of the system is shown on four examples, which examine the queueing mechanisms and queue propagation in transportation networks. Both artificial and real transportation systems are used in simulations and results are discussed.
