I'd like to see a wambulance. Given that there are quite a few medics that edit and waze to get to an emergency call, I'd like to see that option.

I've thought of "waze" to help out emergency responders using waze, myself having been in the industry for 10 years, and find it difficult to really nail down an "emergency mode" setting on the app. I would think that people who see it may use it to their advantage and get in the way of first responders to the scene. I'd like to see something where an emergency responder can close out a few sections of highway/roadway because there's an evacuation going on, street closures due to a large fire, etc, instead of having to go to each individual street.

Palm Beach County SO watches the HOV lane as does ATLPD. They'll pull you over and check the amount of people in the vehicle. Only you? That's a ticket.

Vehicle types/ Navigation types

Postby Unholy » Wed Dec 05, 2012 4:13 pm

Hi folks,

We need your help:

Currently there is only one vehicle type in Waze - Private car.
All navigation methods in Waze are currently designated for the use of drivers who use private cars only.
Well... We're working on exciting stuff here at Waze HQ, but we need your help!

- Which types of vehicles should be added to Waze's client? (i.e truck, 18 wheelers, scooters etc.)
- which types of navigation would you like to see? ( HOV lanes, truck roads only etc.)

We're waiting to hear you all!

* Please elaborate as possible and state your country.

- which types of navigation would you like to see?

Well, it would be great to have a navigation based on the most economical route. Today there's only the fastest and shortest route. The economical mode would be somewere in between fastest and shortest route.

Are there any news about putting on a road a "weight limit"? In my country (Estonia), there are many cities, that can't allow trucks above 8 tonne or so. That idea, in my opinion, is brilliant.

For the more common options we don't want to deal with fully supporting, just have them be pointers to the "Other vehicle" option that gets its speed ignored.

For example, bicycles. We know people use Waze on bicycles, so if we have a bicycle option for them to pick, I bet they are more likely to do so. Especially if it makes their icon into a bicycle ;)

They don't need to know the details that it behaves the same as if they picked "other" and we and Waze don't need to do anything beyond setting up the "other" option.

And if sometime in the future we actually do support bicycles in a more complex manner, then the backend can change and the client already is set to bicycle.

So to expand that thought, once we have a list of vehicle types we can imagine people using, add ALL of the common ones in that list and point them to "other" until such time that they do get special treatment. If we rather NOT ignore their data as if they were "other", point them instead to the normal/default/car profile on the backend.

And in the bright and distant future, we could go crazy and have the client show 50 different vehicle types but the back end can have them assigned to a nice tidy list of 5 or 10 profiles.

Also i see there in waze is already motorcycle icon - it means, a motorcycles works correctly in waze? in example, with motorcycle i can drive mostly even if cars traffic is standstill - it does not generate wrong data for them, who sits in their "metal canns" ? :D
