A Probability Distribution Model on Route Optimization for Hazmat Transportation

The transportation of hazardous materials may result in significant social risks. The route planning is one of the most effective measures to reduce the risk and the cost. A new probability model based on time dependent of links is developed. The routing algorithm based on the model is also put forward to find the optimal route whose sum of weighted risk-cost is the least. An example is introduced to verify its usability. The model is convenient for carrier to select the optimal route by adjusting the probability distribution in different time slots of links according to the real situation.
