Abstract

Present route-planning systems still use static plan- ning to avoid the problems of dynamic time constraints imposed during the journey, i.e., they plan the route before the actual trip starts. In other words, users must wait patiently for an unknown period of time for the system to fmish planning. Planning a route based on an arbi- trary time period can no longer satisfy the market. This type of time-constraints especially applies to the in-vehicle embedded route-planning systems.
