Flight Path Optimization for Minimizing Emissions and Avoiding Weather Hazard
In this paper we present a methodology to determine the optimal path of airplanes in order to solve conflicts, avoid weather hazard and reduce pollutant emissions. To this aim, the aircraft movement is modeled by a finite state automaton: the state is a vector describing the space aircraft position, its airspeed and heading; the outputs are the aircraft emissions of CO2 and NOx. In the described framework, the aircraft path planning problem is formulated as the search for an optimal transition state path of the automaton which minimizes CO2 and NOx emissions. To this aim, an integer multi-objective programming problem is formulated and solved. Experimental results show an example of a path optimization and a comparison with a real airplane trajectory
