Navigating city streets efficiently is a complex puzzle that public works departments face daily. Welcome to the world of high-density routing, where the objective is to weave through the intricate web of urban roads. High-density routing is a type of vehicle routing problem with the goal of visiting every street (or a large subset of streets) in a street network. This poses a challenge for public works departments because there are many practical considerations to account for when creating a route, including correct side of street servicing, single pass vs. double pass, turn restrictions, vehicle size constraints, vehicle capacities, multiple facilities, and multiple service frequencies. Additionally, real-world constraints of driving heavy-duty public fleet vehicles on city streets must also be considered, such as traffic, road closures, and weather conditions.
In this webinar, we are going to look at the high-density routing problem and the challenges it creates in the real world, after which we’re going to dive into solutions for how to overcome this challenge once and for all.
