  abstract =     "In this paper, we propose a priority-based road
                 traffic control (PBC). PBC is a sort of multi-agent
                 system, assuming autonomous vehicles as agents, in
                 which road traffic should be controlled through
                 interactions between the intelligent car agents. PBC
                 protocol is the common protocol through which the car
                 agents negotiate their priorities when their driving
                 lines mutually interfere, in order to determine the
                 order of crossing a given intersection. We applied
                 genetic programming to evolve the dynamic formula of
                 setting the priorities so that the PBC protocol allows
                 for adaptive and efficient road traffic control even
                 without traffic signals. The conducted simulations
                 verify the efficiency of the proposed PBC, and compared
                 the latter with some other methods. We generalize that
                 the proposed PBC is quite efficient in that it improves
                 the road traffic in an intersection even without the
                 need of traffic signals.",
