pgr_trspVia
 Proposed¶
pgr_trspVia
Route that goes through a list of vertices with restrictions.
Warning
Proposed functions for next mayor release.
They are not officially in the current release.
They will likely officially be part of the next mayor release:
The functions make use of ANYINTEGER and ANYNUMERICAL
Name might not change. (But still can)
Signature might not change. (But still can)
Functionality might not change. (But still can)
pgTap tests have being done. But might need more.
Documentation might need refinement.
Availability
Version 3.4.0
New proposed function:
pgr_trspVia
(One Via)
Description¶
Given a list of vertices and a graph, this function is equivalent to finding the shortest path between \(vertex_i\) and \(vertex_{i+1}\) for all \(i < size\_of(via\;vertices)\) trying not to use restricted paths.
The paths represents the sections of the route.
The general algorithm is as follows:
Execute a pgr_dijkstraVia  Proposed.
For the set of sub paths of the solution that pass through a restriction then
Execute the TRSP algorithm with restrictions for the paths.
NOTE when this is done,
U_turn_on_edge
flag is ignored.

 Example 8:
Sometimes
U_turn_on_edge
flag is ignored when is set tofalse
.
The first step, doing a pgr_dijkstraVia  Proposed does consider not making a U turn on the same edge. But the path \(16 \rightarrow 13\) (Rows 4 and 5) is restricted and the result is using it.
SELECT * FROM pgr_dijkstraVia(
$$SELECT id, source, target, cost, reverse_cost FROM edges$$,

When executing the pgr_trsp  Proposed algorithm for the conflicting path, there is
no U_turn_on_edge
flag.
SELECT 1 AS path_id, path_seq, start_vid, end_vid, node, edge, cost, agg_cost FROM pgr_trsp(
