ICNavS: A tool for reliable dynamic route guidance

Kaparias, I., Bell, M. G. H., Chen, Y. & Bogenberger, K. (2007). ICNavS: A tool for reliable dynamic route guidance. IET Intelligent Transport Systems, 1(4), pp. 225-233. doi: 10.1049/iet-its:20060066


The aim of this paper is to devise a new reliable dynamic route guidance approach by integrating the A* algorithm, the concept of reliability and an existing route guidance method into a single package. A new purpose-developed software tool, the Imperial College Navigation Software (ICNavS), is presented, so as to implement and demonstrate the new approach on a real road network, using simulated data. A summary of the background of the program is given, followed by a procedure developed in order to model the features of real road networks, as well as missing data. Then, a imulation experiment on a part of West London’s road network is carried out and the results are presented.
