Locating sensors to observe network arc flows: Exact and heuristic approaches

  title={Locating sensors to observe network arc flows: Exact and heuristic approaches},
  author={Lucio Bianco and Carmine Cerrone and Raffaele Cerulli and Monica Gentili},
  journal={Computers & OR},
The problem of optimally locating sensors on a traffic network to monitor flows has been object of growing interest in the past few years, due to its relevance in the field of traffic management and control. Sensors are often located in a network in order to observe and record traffic flows on arcs and/or nodes. Given traffic levels on arcs within range or covered by the sensors, traffic levels on unobserved portions of a network can then be computed. In this paper, the problem of identifying a… CONTINUE READING
