The coordination of autonomous vehicles is an open field that is addressed by different researches comprising many different techniques. In this paper we focus on decentralized approaches able to provide adaptability to different infrastructural and traffic conditions. We formalize an Emergent Behavior Approach that, as per our knowledge, has never been performed for this purpose, and a Decentralized Auction approach. We compare them against existing centralized negotiation approaches based on auctions and we determine under which conditions each approach is preferable to the others.
