Most traffic simulation frameworks move vehicles from some location A to some location B as the result of different equations of motion or fluid dynamics. As it is, reality is much more complex because what actually happens on the road is not only determined by physics of motion, but also by the perception and attitudes of the drivers. In this work, we introduce an approach which considers a driver's state of mind within large scale traffic simulations. For this purpose we describe a BDI based conceptualisation of a driver and extend common simulation topologies with service oriented concepts.
