Ortec is working with digital map provider Navteq to update its routing and scheduling solution with traffic congestion pattern information.
"The updated Congestion Patterns Module will incorporate traffic pattern and delay statistics generated by NAVTEQ while creating routes in ORTEC TD", says Theodoor Torn, ORTEC TD product manager. "A unique aspect of the updated module is the fact that the information is modeled according to a delay pattern for trucks.. NAVTEQ already delivered traffic data for cars, but because trucks move differently through traffic, an adapted model was needed."
A project to fine-tune the updated module has been started at one of ORTEC’s most prominent clients. The updated module will be available as part of ORTEC TD in 2010, the company says.
