Abstract

This paper presents an innovative modeling framework able to support planning, management and optimization of waste collection operations in an urban context. A proprietary simulator composed by three functionality modules (Global Positioning System, Data Mining system, Simulator for routing and resource exploitation) was implemented by the authors, and was then validated on a specific set of case studies. This application has been made possible within PLANAGO regional government funded research project and was based on previous experiences of the authors. This approach was also extended beyond the particular application and is now under test in different application fields strictly related to logistics and environmental protection. © 2011 IEEE.
