Development of an Intelligent Path Planning Method for Materials Handling Machinery at Construction Sites
Construction processes can be implemented in most cases using various sorts of equipment. These can move along various paths, over the construction site from one job to another or during their operation. The proper choice of their path is a basic aspect for the planning of optimal processes. This paper is devoted to this problem. First it surveys some useful methods of path planning from the literature. Then it compares the methods considering construction specialties and finally it presents the developed intelligent system.
