ACO-Based Global Optimal Transportation Path
This paper discusses how to address some issues when contemplating the global optimal transportation path (GOTP) such as dynamics, the ability of real-time analysis as well as complexity of prediction. Using shortest path methodology, this paper abstracts the real-life problem to a graphic context. Based on the solution of ant colony optimization (ACO) algorithm, the simulation indicates that this manner is efficient and effective in dealing with these problems. The indicators utilized ACO are achieved through simulation results analysis, providing the range of exact elements.
