Vehicular and pedestrian traffic flows

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is nowadays a booming sector, where the contribution of mathematical modeling and optimization is widely recognized. In this perspective, traffic flow models are a commonly cited example of "complex systems", in which individual behavior and self-organization phenomena must be taken into account to obtain a realistic description of the observed macroscopic dynamics  [103] . Further improvements require more advanced models, keeping into better account interactions at the microscopic scale, and adapted control techniques, see  [57] and references therein. In particular, we will focus on the following aspects:
