Control your turns

In some use cases, truck drivers and deliverers prefer turns on the passenger side during the route. Even if this results in a small detour, it can reduce waiting times and enhance safety. Now you have the possibility to control such a behavior (see the right route below using the new feature).

 

Have a look at the new version of the PTV Developer Routing API V1.5.0 and start with the concept Turn Restrictions describing the new attribute ‘preferTurnsOnPassengerSide’.

Time for a break

Driving time regulations are crucial for vehicle drivers. They define a set of rules for break and rest periods as well as for travel limits to improve road safety and ensure good working conditions. And the corresponding laws could be different in different countries!

In the new version of the PTV Developer Routing API V1.5.0 we now offer the long-awaited consideration of driver’s working hours for EU and USA including service times and opening intervals.

More details to this topic are available in the corresponding concept Driving Time Regulations. Please note that the service times and especially the opening intervals at every waypoint could be too much information for a GET method. So we added to our API the new POST method ‘calculateRoutePost’ for this feature. Of course, all other features from the presently GET method ‘calculateRoute’ are included.
