Parking height

Postby cadsite » Tue Mar 14, 2017 2:25 pm

At work we can choose between a VW Caddy (height 1,89m) and a BMW 316 (lower :P ).
Today only the BMW was available, so we took that one.
At Brussels I drove into a parking, close to our destination thanks to waze.
The parking is very low, the max. height is 1,75m. Luckily we were there with the bmw and not the Caddy.
It would be a nice feature if the max. height would be announced of parking space.

I completely understand that routing with heights is a lot work, but adding a height to parking spots should be rather simple, no?

Things it could warn about are

1) low bridge and give height imperial and metric
2) weak bridge give weight limits
3) narrow section give width (bridge or road)
4) speed hums or hump back bridges info for low trailers
5) roads unsuitable for hgv lgv and other types of large transport vehicles like buses.
6) not suitable for bendi buses
7) only suitable for vehicles of a certain length

So you could either have to select a vehicle and dimensions criteria before planning a route. Or have a few lorry bus options somewhere during route planning?

But some truckers use it now anyway. So how does that data get used? Or calculated?

Waze should register if you have stopped at a service station, rest area or truck stop and register it as a break and then ask you if you are continuing with route. With large goods vehicles and some coaches the stop may be overnight or for the required amount of hours.

You could report if you have stopped due to lost load or tyre issue then it would appear as a hazard d :)

Maybe waze could ask what vehicle your driving.
1) size
2) axle weight
3 ) total weight
4) width
5) height
6) low loader
7) limited speed could be entered for all roads applicable
8) driving / break times as per above

Just thought if your driving a bus or coach you will have bus stops or service station breaks for passengers.

Could waze talk with one of the bus apps that shows real time bus movements and incorporate that data somehow? Buses do effect traffic if there are no bus lanes.

Waze doesn't seem to want to add truck and Bus stuff. So on that note I suggest they create a separate app called Waze truck & Bus for this purpose.

Could they either buy data from other apps and sat navs or would they create their own fresh data?
