OPTIMA Seminar: Daniele Vigo, Wednesday, November 30th 2016 – Visual Attractiveness in Routing Problems

Date: November, 30th, 11h00

Place: Inria Lille-Nord Europe

Abstract: Enhancing visual attractiveness or “beauty” in a routing plan has proven to be an effective way to facilitate
practical implementation and positive collaboration among tactical and operational levels in the organization.
This is the reason why many authors have considered, either explicitly or implicitly, such aspect in the optimization
process for different routing applications. However, due to its subjective nature, there is not a single way of
evaluating visual beauty of a routing solution. The aim of this talk is to provide an overview of the literature on
visual attractiveness and to show the results of a heuristic algorithm incorporating explicitly visual attractiveness
optimization. In particular, we analyse the different metrics that were used to model the visual attractiveness
of a routing plan and provide guidelines that planners and researchers can use to select the method that better suits their needs.

Joint work with Diego Gabriel Rossit, Fernando Tohmé, Mariano Frutos.
