Abstract: In practice, to perform periodic monitoring of a territory under uncertain conditions when the current situation evolves unpredictably is a common problem. In this case, at each cycle, the routes of control objects must take into account the situation at the previous cycle. We consider a target assignment approach for a group of control objects performing such monitoring. For each object in the group, the routing problem is solved using an ant colony algorithm that involves in explicit form, the situation parameters defined at the previous cycle of monitoring.

Keywords: vehicle routing problem; ant colony algorithm; control object; recurrence; situation intensity.
