Abstract

The growing of vehicular traffic in urban areas hasworsened the citizens’ quality of life. Therefore some actions to reduce their negative effects and to improve transport networkperformances have been implemented over the years. To this purpose, agent-based Intelligent Transport Systems can contribute to manage a transport network. In this work, a non-intrusive grid of agent-based sensors able to monitor traffic parametersis proposed. It exploits acoustic signatures of road vehicles and then analyses them to estimate traffic flows. Moreover, cooperating neighboring agent sensors implement a trust systemto improve their erformances. Some experimental results showthe feasibility and the advantages of the proposed solution.
