“A Geographic Information Systems-Based Real-Time Decision-Support Framework for Routing Vehicles Carrying Hazardous Materials”

Journal of Intelligent Transportation Systems 15(1), 28-41.
Kim, M., E. Miller-Hooks and R. Nair (2011)

Pub42A framework for a Geographic Information Systems (GIS)-based decision support system (DSS) designed to provide on-line routing instructions in response to updated information on traffic and weather conditions for vehicles transporting hazardous materials is presented. Embedded within the DSS is a heuristic that exploits a spatially and temporally rolling horizon. The heuristic is implemented using standard, widely available, tools to facilitate adoption by decision-makers. The DSS’s ability to dynamically update instructions in response to real-time information is demonstrated along the corridor between the metropolitan areas of Washington D.C. and Baltimore.
