A software tool for optimising business travel.
04/01/2008 - 04/01/2009
To produce a commercially viable tool that identifies opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of business travel activities. A range of techniques will be used to search for such opportunities and assess them according to user preferences.
The project looked at using optimisation techniques to plan business travel (i.e. journey sharing) and reduce its environmental impact.
Both soft constraints (personal preferences) and hard constraints were modelled to identify the best opportunities in each situation.
A software tool for optimising business travel. is a Government Research Grants project funded by Scottish Enterprise funded PoC project.
Carried out in collaboration with and others.
