Ant Colony Optimization for Train Scheduling: An Analysis

By Sudip Kumar Sahana Aruna Jain Prabhat Kumar Mahanti

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jan. 2014

This paper deals on cargo train scheduling between source station and destination station in Indian railways scenario. It uses Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) technique which is based on ant’s food finding behavior. Iteration wise convergence process and the convergence time for the algorithm are studied and analyzed. Finally, the run time analysis of Ant Colony Optimization Train Scheduling (ACOTS) and Standard Train Scheduling (STS) algorithm has been performed.
