Traffic congestion has negative impact in our life. In 2001, the European Commission estimated costs of congestion at around 120 billion Euro. The research of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) becomes interesting since infrastructure expansion in not always feasible. In order to find out the impact of automated vehicle and intelligent infrastructure to traffic performance, we develop a model of hierarchical vehicle controller and intelligent infrastructure and implement them in a simulated environment using Multi Agent System concept. Several traffic scenarios are deployed to observe the effect of the designed vehicle controller and the model of intelligent infrastructure in traffic.
