Abstract:
A Dynamic Travel Path Optimization System (DTPOS) based on Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) for the prediction of the best path to a given destination is presented. The system is modeled in a multi-agent multi-purpose framework in NetLogo and experiments conducted on 100 test vehicles under different traffic scenarios. The test vehicles are released from a fixed location in the simulation environment and given a predefined destination. The route taken by the vehicles to reach the destination gives a measure of the intelligence in the system. Two variations of the system, DTPOS with ACO (DTPOS+ACO) and DTPOS without ACO (DTPOS-ACO) are investigated to establish the effect of ACO on the solution. For every vehicle which successfully makes it to the destination, the mean travel time is recorded. The results have shown that at all traffic densities the mean travel time of vehicles in DTPOS+ACO was always lower than those for DTPOS-ACO. Also it was shown that for the same percentage of vehicles arriving at the destination, DTPOS+ACO vehicles took less time than DTPOS-ACO vehicles.
