This paper reports our experiences with agent-based architectures for Intelligent Traffic Management. We describe and compare TRYS and TRYSA2, two multiagent systems that perform decision support for real time traffic management in the urban motorway network around Barcelona. Both systems draw upon similar traffic management knowledge, but the former is based on a centralized architecture, while in the latter co-ordination emerges upon the lateral interaction of autonomous traffic management agents. We conclude that the centralized approach applied by TRYS promotes efficiency for real time operation, whereas the decentralized approach used in TRYSA2 promotes scalability.
