This is the "perfect route" to see the failures of the Special Section of Valencia

And team of students from the Polytechnic Universityfrom Valencia (UPV) has drawn up the “perfect route” to see the faults of the section Especial in the shortest possible time on foot, by bike or by public transport.

To design this route, the students of the university master’s degree in Data Analysis Engineering, Process Improvement and Decision Making at the UPV have transferred to the Fallas the resolution of what is known in logistics as Problems of the Commercial Traveler (TSP) and applied genetic algorithms.

One of them, Javier Boixexplain what Normally people tend to focus on the most spectacular monuments, those in the Special section, however, being so separated and with so many activities that it is easy to leave some to be seenand more so in the case of visitors from outside Valencia.

To solve this circumstance, they propose the use of metaheuristic models with the intention of finding the optimal route or, at least, a good route that allows, in the shortest possible time, visit all the special category fallaes in the city.

In their study, they present the best route to visit them on foot, but also if you want to go by bike or using public transport.

The traveler’s starting point is the Nord station, and from there he has to reach each of the nine faults of Special category of 2024point David Veloso.

As detailed Victor SerranoIn the case of the walking route, the route would be just over 10.5 kilometers, by bike 13 kilometers and with public transport 14.5 km.

The TSP model

In 1832 there is evidence for the first time of interest in this problem, upon being published in a guide for street vendors. The aim is to minimize the travel cost of a seller who needs to visit a series of cities and return to the city of departurethat is, the aim is to find the route that minimizes the transportation cost.

In the case posed by the students, the problem of the typical traveler undergoes some small variations, but in essence it remains the same.

Specifically, it is proposed that instead of traveling to different cities the traveler will have to visit all the Fallas of Valencia’s Special category.

Furthermore, instead of working with costs they work with the time it would take to complete the complete route, seeking to minimize the total travel time, according to Diego Esteve.

Three routes

The routes are They propose leaving on March 18 at 9 in the morning from the Nord station.

For visit on foot the faults of Special the tour would be Convent Jerusalem-Mathematic Marzal, El Pilar, Monastery of Poblet-Aparicio Albiñana (L’Antiga de Campanar), Na Jordana, Exposición-Micer Mascó, Almirante Cadarso – Conde Altea, Kingdom of Valencia-Duke of Calabria, Swedish-Literato Azorín and Cuba-Literato Azorín.

In bikesthe order would be El Pilar, Monastery of Poblet-Aparicio Albiñana (L’Antiga de Campanar), Na Jordana, Exposición-Micer Mascó, Almirante Cadarso-Conde Altea, Kingdom of Valencia-Duke of Calabria, Sueca-Literato Azorín, Cuba- Literato Azorín and Convent Jerusalem- Matemático Marzal.

In case of travel by public transportthe route would begin by visiting Cuba-Literato Azorín and continue in Sueca-Literato Azorín, Reino de Valencia-Duke of Calabria, Almirante Cadarso-Conde Altea, Exposición-Micer Mascó, Na Jordana, Monestir de Poblet-Aparicio Albiñana (The Old Campanar), El Pilar and Convent Jerusalem- Matemático Marzal.
