Abstract: Although, in the carpooling process, effective negotiation requires that individuals (agents) effectively convey and interpret information to enable carpooling. However, the strict timing constraints in the schedule of the day have the opposite effect. Through negotiation, individuals can reach complex agreements in an iterative way. This paper presents the design of an agent-based model to analyze various effects of agent interaction and behavior adaptation of a set of candidate carpoolers that serves as a proof of concept. The proposed model extends the previous one by applying different cases for the constraining activities for their work trip start times. The start of the carpooling process depends on the individuals’ objectives and intention to carpool. From the simulation’s discussions, it is possible to portray the real picture of the potential carpoolers throughout their carpooling period. The Janus (multi-agent) platform is used for simulating the interactions of autonomous agents with their agenda.
