The models and methods of multi-agent cyber-physical systems based on the principles of the decentralized multi-agent management
An intensive development of the cyber-physical system control technologies, particularly, robotic transportation, persuasively proves that the introduction of the vehicular robotic complexes is one of the main tendencies in the automobile production. The models and methods of multi-agent cyber-physical systems make a significant contribution to the development of such technologies. Unlike well-known decisions which are based on use of the semi-autonomous control systems that have CPU created by the laboratory staff, the algorithm is based on the principles of the decentralized multi-agent management. The optimal plan of the transit through the intersection is developed jointly by all the agents who are included in the dynamic collaboration of unmanned transportation. During the process of sharing information about themselves and environment the agents define such sequence of the transit through the intersection with all the vehicles which is the optimal according to a predetermined criterion. The experiments show that the effectiveness of suggested algorithm rises with the increase of the road traffic density. Besides, the absence of such critically important object as CPU in the control system significantly reduces the effectiveness of possible failures and hacker attacks on the intersection control system.
