Dec 04, 2020 The cost can be whatever you like it to be, e.g. distance, time, fuel consumption.. The cost is what routing algorithms try to minimize when searching a route from A to B. For most scenarios, the basis for cost is time. While traversing the graph from the starting nodeedge, the cost is accumulated along the path.

Dijkstra Algorithm. The algorithm was developed by a Dutch computer scientist Edsger W. Dijkstra in 1956. It is used to find the shortest path between a nodevertex source node to any or every other nodesvertices destination nodes in a graph. A graph is basically an interconnection of nodes connected by edges.
