Routing profiles

In order to solve VRP, you need to specify at least one routing profile.

Usage

Routing profiles are defined in fleet.profiles:

    "profiles": [
      {
        "name": "normal_car",
        "type": "car"
      }
    ]

The name must be unique for each profile and it should referenced by profile property defined on vehicle:

        "profile": "normal_car",

Use -m option to pass the matrix:

vrp-cli solve pragmatic problem.json -m routing_matrix.json -o solution.json

If you don't pass any routing matrix, then haversine formula is used to calculate distances between geo locations. Durations are calculated using speed value defined via speed property in each profile. It is optional, default value is 10 which corresponds to 10m/s.

Multiple profiles

In general, you're not limited to one single routing profile. You can define multiple ones and pass their matrices to the solver:

vrp-cli solve pragmatic problem.json -m routing_matrix_car.json -m routing_matrix_truck.json

Make sure that for all profile names in fleet.profiles you have the corresponding matrix specified.

See multiple profiles example.

Time dependent routing

In order to use this feature, specify more than one routing matrix for each profile with timestamp property set.
