Abstract: A multiagent architecture for real-time coordinated signal control in an urban traffic network is introduced. The multiagent architecture consists of three hierarchical layers of controller agents: intersection, zone, and regional controllers. Each controller agent is implemented by applying artificial intelligence concepts, namely, fuzzy logic, neural network, and evolutionary algorithm. From the fuzzy rule base, each individual controller agent recommends an appropriate signal policy at the end of each signal phase. These policies are later processed in a policy repository before being selected and implemented into the traffic network. To handle the changing dynamics of the complex traffic processes within the network, an online reinforcement learning module is used to update the knowledge base and inference rules of the agents. This concept of a multi-agent system with online reinforcement learning was implemented in a network consisting of 25 signalized intersections in a microscopic traffic simulator. Initial test results showed that the multiagent system improved average delay and total vehicle stoppage time, compared with the effects of fixed-time traffic signal control.
