Vera has just been tapped as transportation development regulatory officer of Batangas City, Philippines and is tasked with solving the city’s traffic problems. She looks back on her education in computer science and realizes that the best way to go about this task is to use an algorithm, but which one should she choose? Students are asked to place themselves in the shoes of the protagonist and exhaust all possibilities to arrive at the optimal choice.

  • Discuss the importance and ways of technology transfer in transport planning.
  • Identify a set of algorithms for computing shortest paths on real road networks.
  • Write the appropriate algorithm to calculate the most efficient route to reduce travel time and promote sustainable mobility.
