Semiclassical gravity has been able to make solid predictions of quantum phenomena in gravitational environments and, more recently, by the prediction of analogous effects on condensed matter systems. This year it was announced the first experimental realization of a Hawking radiation analog in a Bose-Einstein condensate. In this project, we propose to investigate the formation of black hole analogs in vehicular traffic environments. (AU)
