A Traveller Information System: Minimisation of the Number of Graphs' Nodes Involved When Processing Route Requests

The number of people using public transport is continuously increasing. Transport companies want to fulfil travellers' expectations wherever possible. However, the great number of public transport companies operating in the same area can sometimes confuse travellers as to which route they should take and how to obtain the information relative to their journey. In this paper the authors suggest integrating several traveller information systems from different companies into the same multimodal information system, offering companies the choice not to share their data. This encourages them to join the system. Additionally, the authors have minimised the number of nodes involved when processing travellers' requests in order to simplify the calculation process. To put this plan into action, the authors have opted for a multi-agent system coupled with the Voronoi decomposition for managing the network.
