Currently, there are a large number of traffic simulation frameworks available. Usually, the principle of these simulation frameworks is to 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 between A and B is highly determined by the preferences and attitudes of the driver himself and not just by any mathematical formalism. In this work, we introduce an approach which considers a driver's mind within large scale traffic simulations. For this purpose we describe a BDI based conceptialisation of a driver and extend common simulation topologies with service oriented concepts.
