A key characteristic of dynamic transportation networks is the classical antagonism between user and system benefits. The integration of best choices for users does not necessarily lead to optimal conditions at the network level. Classical management strategies are usually applied at local scale by controlling flows, e.g. traffic signal management.

We are convinced that this will contribute to rethink the daily management of mobility in smart cities.
