Optimization and Decision Making for Route Selection as an Alternative of Google Maps Considering Sustainability

The concept of smart cities has been developed with advances in information and communication technologies (ICT). Aging infrastructure, declining budgets, changing population, sustainability, and investments are some of the current issues in urban environments. In many different types of the context of smart city solutions, transportation and logistics form the main part of that solution. Hence, there is a need for leveraging the digital footprint and using the data along with the decision tools to get the best performance of the infrastructure assets. The decisions between all options of transportation are currently based on current time and traffic conditions, and other factors such as sustainability, and costs are not considered. This paper aims to create decision support tools to make city planning and operations more efficient and improve the quality of life of citizens along multiple dimensions. The proposed method tries to investigate various factors of each transportation option including but not limited to the cost, times to be taken, and fuel consumption.
