This contribution presents a new concept for trafficflow-optimization by means of C2C-communication and decentralized vehicle-control in a type of multi-agent-approach. The vehicles’ velocities and their longitudinal positions are adapted by means of a consensus algorithm. The vehicles’ formations are modeled as a velocity dependend discretized road model which is represented as a Petri net. The Petri net representation is used for development of formation algorithms to manage the distribution of vehicles on the lanes and the encounter of vehicle groups.
