Outstanding among these is ant colony optimization (aco), which in problems of high complexity (np-hard) in combinatorial optimization. Ant colony optimization (aco) is a promising new approach to combinatorial optimization here aco is applied to the traveling salesman problem (tsp.
In essence, aco is inspired by the foraging behavior of natural ant colonies which optimize their path from an origin (ant nest) to a destination. This paper proposes an ant colony optimization algorithm to assist railroad yard operational planning staff in their daily tasks the proposed algorithm tries to. Abstract—ant colony optimisation (aco) algorithms use two heuristics to solve computational problems: one long-term (pheromone) and the other short-term.

Ants 2018: eleventh international conference on swarm intelligence, italian national research council (cnr), rome, italy (october 29-31, 2018. The ant colony algorithm is an algorithm for finding optimal paths that is bring food, shorter paths are more likely to be stronger, hence optimizing the solution.
