We propose a holonic multiagent simulator that can simulate any complex urban environment. We focus on traffic simulation within any geographic area on earth, subject to any weather conditions. We adopt an agent-based approach for the different beahviors of the vehicles, drivers, and pedestrians. The proposed driving behavioral models can realistically emulate driving behaviors of humans. The resulting simulator can handle all the complexities of such environments in accordance with the laws of physics.
