Abstract

This paper investigates the Prize-Collecting Vehicle Routing Problem (PCVRP), to simulate a tourist trip design problem, and the solution of it via a hybrid Firefly Algorithm (FA), namely the Firefly Algorithm based on Coordinates (FAC). To the best of our knowledge, there is no publication found in the literature, focusing on the solution of the PCVR via FA. The hybridization that we propose is founded on the position, in the 2D-space, of each node included in a solution. Thus, the update mechanism of the original FA can be applied on non-probabilistic, continuous, problem-rated values. In order to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm, computational experiments were conducted over benchmark instances found in the literature. The results obtained by the FAC were compared to the corresponding solutions of another hybrid metaheuristic algorithm, the Distance Related Differential Evolution (DRDE) Algorithm and the CPLEX solver.
