Social dynamics, control of large groups and vehicular traffic.

We revise come recent approach to model social dynamics and to control large group of autonomous agents. Control algorithms may be developed at multiple scales: microscopic, kinetic and macroscopic. Mean-field approaches allow to connect scaled and use multiscale models. The attention is then directed to vehicular traffic models and the dissipation of stop-and-go waves via autonomous vehicles.
