Routing based on time of day?

Postby ariesboy475 » Wed Aug 12, 2009 11:15 pm

i see that the current routing is based on known paths and presumably average speeds on those paths + current speeds due to incidents. Will it be able to account for time based speeds as well?

Major highways, freeways, and large roads are typically fast most of the time. But during rush hour they tend to be much slower. Does the system save/account for time of day as well?

Yes, eventually the 'live' part of the roads will include a drill down by day of week (saturday morning vs. regular morning) and time of day (rush hour vs. late night). Of course, we first need to collect enough information to make this effective...
