TL;DR: We give a high level overview of our reinforcement learning based search method for the capacitated vehicle routing problem. We also provide a demo that allows you to apply this method to different problem instances step-by-step. The corresponding ECAI 2020 paper is available here. Our implementation is available on GitHub.

Combinatorial optimization problems (COPs) can be found in all areas of industry and government. One of the most well-studied classes of COPs is the routing of vehicles. Currently these problems are usually solved with handcrafted, problem specific methods. However, in recent years, many approaches have been developed that learn…
