This project addresses the problem of modelling large scale complex systems to provide predictions of their macroscopic behaviour. For application purpose, we focus here on the particular problem of the real-time prediction of traffic conditions on a road network.

Car traffic is a typical complex system which exhibits emerging phenomena such as jam formation and long distance interactions throughout a network. In particular we focus on the analysis of the traffic patterns delivered by the METROPOLIS traffic simulation software, in order to set up a prediction method based on a statistical physics modelling and message-passing algorithms.

Contractor: ANR    //   Project duration: 3 years (2009-2011)    //   R&D grant: euros 96 000.
