Séminaire IRPHE

Traffic jams and active particles

Orateur : Thomas Barois, LOMA, équipe Matière Molle & Biophysique / Bordeaux

Abstract : The time spent by drivers in jams during commuting hours can be quite significant for urban networks such as it is for Bordeaux metropolitan area. I guess it is the same story for Marseille area but I would rather come and check personally the situation before propagating inaccurate information.

During my visit, I will jump on the occasion to present some of the recent results we have on traffic. First, I will discuss the general features of the transition to congestion in road traffic. I will show that some of the observations about the traffic on roads and in urban networks are somehow counter-intuitive, if not paradoxical. Secondly, I will show how simple self-propelled robots can be used to realize a traffic experiment with active systems that reproduces some of the observations of road traffic.

Date et lieu : le vendredi 31 janvier à 11h00, salle des séminaires, IRPHE
