School Bus Routing using Harmony Search Zong Woo Geem Johns Hopkins

  title={School Bus Routing using Harmony Search Zong Woo Geem Johns Hopkins},
  author={Zong Woo Geem},
A recently-developed nature-inspired algorithm, Harmony Search, mimicking music improvisation, is introduced and applied to transportation problem (school bus routing), and compared with popular evolutionary algorithm (genetic algorithm). The Harmony Search is conceptualized using the musical process of searching for a perfect state of harmony. This algorithm was applied to a test network consisting of one bus depot, one school and ten bus stops with demand by commuting students. This school… CONTINUE READING
