Optimal Path Selection for Mine Emergency Rescue Based on Improved Ant Colony Algorithm
It is the primary task to ensure the safety of lives and property of underground workers with the increasing amount of coal mining. Under the actual complex environment of coal, all kinds of uncertian factors should be considered except for the distance for the selection of the optimal path to reduce casualties. Aiming at the defect of the lower solution accuracy and tending to fall into local optimal solution of the basic ant colony algorithm(ACA), an improved ant colony algorithm is presented based on the model of ACA. Experiment results show that the new algorithm can get better results.
