+ Distributed Traffic Routing to Reduce Congestion

Selfish routing in transportation networks is the phenomenon where individual agents make uncoordinated greedy routing decisions. This is known not to produce a socially desirable outcome in transport and communication networks. We are using multiagent approach that leverages complex network theory, game theory and machine learning to address this general problem of the loss of social welfare that occurs due to uncoordinated behavior in networks.
