Subject: Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Open Technologies and Open Data in ITS
Vicky Vergara and I developed a vehicle routing problem solver as part
of a city wide trash collection planning system that Ingesur developed
for the city of Montevideo UY. Our repository is here:
This is an interesting problem because we linked ORSM into our solver
code and used OSM data for the street network data. We worked
extensively with Ingesur and they were an excellent partner in this
project (I've cc'd Fernando @ Ingesur). This solver deals with many real
world issues, like container and truck volume limits, pickup time
windows, some trucks that can only pickup containers on the right side
of the vehicle, trucks can not make u-turns at containers on streets, etc.
We looked at using pgRouting and OSRM for computing routes and picked
OSRM for performance and the fact that this was easiest for the clients
to update the street network as needed and then to reload OSM into OSRM.
We integrated the functionality in to postgresql as an extension, but I
believe the final solution actually ended up using a command line
interface that we used to develop the code under.
Anyway, if you have additional questions, we would be happy to address them.
