This work focuses on optimizing node placement for time-of-flight-based wireless localization networks. Main motivation are critical safety applications. The first part of my thesis is an experimental study on in-tunnel vehicle localization. In- tunnel localization of vehicles is crucial for emergency management, especially for large trucks transporting dangerous goods such as inflammable...

Stochastic vehicle routing : from theory to practice

Weyland, Dennis ; Gambardella, Luca Maria (Dir.) ; Montemanni, Roberto (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2013 ; 2013INFO002.

In this thesis we discuss practical and theoretical aspects of various stochastic vehicle routing problems. These are combinatorial optimization problems related to the field of transportation and logistics in which input data is (partially) represented in a stochastic way. More in detail, we focus on two-stage stochastic vehicle routing problems and in particular on so-called a priori...
