Abstract

In the emerging field of Intelligent Vehicle High- way Systems (IVHS), systems are being developed to plan routes from any location to any location taking into account various route selection criteria. Some route planning systems will find the "least expensive" route between an origin and a destination using differ- ent cost criteria, where cost could be distance or time. In many cases one would like to influence the route planning process by specifying various preferences that should be considered in conjunction with other route planning criteria. The author is not aware of any other system that has this added capability.
