Defining and Computing Alternative Routes in Road Networks

Dees, Jonathan; Geisberger, Robert; Sanders, Peter ORCID iD icon; Bader, Roland


Every human likes choices. But today's fast route planning algorithms usually compute just a single route between source and target. There are beginnings to compute alternative routes, but this topic has not been studied thoroughly. Often, the aspect of meaningful alternative routes is neglected from a human point of view. We fill in this gap by suggesting mathematical definitions for such routes. As a second contribution we propose heuristics to compute them, as this is NP-hard in general.
