Our new PTV xServer 1.26 release is available NOW!


Besides several Bugfixes, Improvements and some Features, the Highlights of the 1.26 Version are:

Framework Improvements:

  • Added new attribute ‘dataCompatibilityVersion’ to the stored profiles in order to check consistency and validity with new PTV map data version. Please ensure that your profiles and map data have the same version as otherwise the PTV xCluster won’t start (see ‘Technical Concepts – About Profiles – Profile & Map Versions’). This is check is needed because we will do some quality improvements in the coming months, which will need adaptation of the vehicle profiles.
  • Improvement: For detailed monitoring it is now possible to send requests to dedicated backend instances.

PTV xTerritory Server allows you to plan and change territories and territory centres based on locations. Common use cases are the management of sales representatives, the planning of warehouse locations and their delivery areas as well as delivery planning.

xLoad-Server-Icon_Puzzleteil-grau_64pPTV xLoad Server – Loading Space Optimisation
Using PTV xLoad Server to optimise the loading space allows you to plan the positioning of transport units in the area perfectly. After defining the characteristics of the truck’s loading space and the transport units, PTV xLoad Server delivers a loading space layout, which shows the wall distribution and the location of the individual transport units.

You might be curious which additional benefits can be expected:

New Feature Layer Themes:Truck Attributes and Traffic Incidents are available in April

Truck Attributes provide information about road restrictions according to truck characteristics like, for example, weight and height. The Traffic Incidents layer offers real time traffic events which have an impact on the traffic state. Both Feature Layer themes are additional data sets which are provided with the corresponding icons and object information to illustrate the truck attributes and traffic incidents via PTV xMap Server. Furthermore, the PTV xRoute Server considers the whole bunch of information to calculate the most precise routings and estimated time of arrival.

Another highlight is the emission calculation according to the current handbook HBEFA 3.2 which is also available as an additional data package for the PTV xRoute Server.

With PTV xServer 1.20 we provide the PTV xServer Bundle only in the 64bit version.

WebinarWe would like to invite you to join the upcoming webinar at 12th of March, 2015. In this webinar we will demonstrate the new features of PTV xServer 1.20 and our brand new Data Manager for PTV xServer internet.
