Intelligent Agent Based Itinerary System for Route Optimizer and Tourist Guide

Ledisi Giok Kabari


The demand for better transport and tourism development in Nigeria is far above the availabilities and keep increasing yearly. The policy on transport and Tourism in Nigeria consider developing the welfare of the nation in this regard and to booster the national economic of the Nation. Thus, the need for an effective router and standard tourist locator is vital demand in this sector of the economic to facilitate successful positive competition in the global market. The paper presents an intelligent agent based itinerary system for route optimizer and tourist guide via a synthesis of heuristic graph itinerary and adaptive routing algorithm. This research work aimed at developing a software application that propose possible path that lead to a destination using multi criterion  approach optimizer that required two variables input (source and destination). We used a hybrid of graph technique and adaptive routing technique to optimize the best lest optimal pathway. The paper may eliminate the difficulties in interpreting road map on paper for traveler and enable travelers to make their journey within Nigeria without asking question.
