Published on

Routing, scheduling, and dispatching are critical in keeping operations running smoothly and at lowest cost. Providing optimal drive routes between a set of locations is a key factor in reducing operating costs for numerous industries (fleet vehicles, transportation, currier services, home delivery). In this session, we’ll discuss routing technology, demonstrate routing applications, and discuss how advances in mobile technology have enabled a cost effective routing and real-time asset tracking solution.

Routing

  1. 1. Government/Industry Look to Routing a Path to Save Time and MoneyPresented By:Levi Felling, Senior Software Engineer02.18.2011We Visualize Your World
  2. 2. Are we there yet? the need for routingAre we there yet?When will we get there?What is the shortest route?What is the fastest route?What is the fastest route right now considering currentweather, traffic?Whos closest?How many deliveries can I schedule?Do I need a bigger/smaller fleet?Can I ride with you?Can we get there from here?
  3. 3. Benefits the need for routingEfficiency & Optimization less time in transit shortest path, avoid traffic delays lower operating expense gas, maintenance precise time of arrival allow for downstream optimizations increase capacity by cutting waste we can do more with less
  4. 4. Who uses routing?Government fleet vehicles first responders maintenance public transportationPrivate Industry courier services home delivery home service trucking
  5. 5. Routing Terminology Drive Directions (DD) - turn by turn navigation Shortest Path (SP) - least cost* path from point to point Travelling Salesman Problem (TSP) - least cost path between a set of points (traditionally the start point is also the end point, such that the salesman returns home after completing his stops) Travelling Salesman Problem w/ Time Windows (TSP-T) - TSP with additional time constraint Dial-a-ride Problem (DARP) - least cost path for a set of specified pickup and drop-off locations along with a desired departure or arrival time* least cost traversal of a directed graph is Math speak for shortest route

  7. 7. Data! Routing will only be as good as your data.Popular options for North American street data tiger (free) OSM (free) ESRI (available with licensed ESRI software) Navteq ($$)Open Street Map"OpenStreetMap has already changed the face of mapping, and it continued its march on today as a potential main data sourcefor a real-time navigation application." - Jan, 2011 mapquest developer blog" when we announced our increased engagement with the open mapping community and the hiring of Steve Coast into BingMaps, we mentioned that Bing Maps would be donating some of its imagery to OpenStreetMap (OSM) for their community touse. This imagery is now available through the Bing Maps Imagery Editor API." - Dec, 2010 bing.com blog
  8. 8. Smart PhonesReal Time tracking with GPS previously expensive dedicated device was only feasible for the big guys (UPS, FedEx) now capable with a phone and data plan customized application on the device that can support multitasking, runs in background, geo-fencing, signature capture, barcode scanning, Push-to-Talk (walkie talkie connect w/ dispatch) or simple webpage that implements the Javascript Geolocation API opened in browser on the phone
  9. 9. Elite Extrawww.eliteextra.comElite EXTRATM (Extreme Tracking and Routing Application) is an online, real-time tool thatstreamlines your deliveries, while lowering your operational costs.This innovative, yet affordable delivery system transforms antiquated paper-based and phone call-dependent processes into automated and integrated traffic control centers.EXTRA automatically creates optimal routes on a web-based interactive map, increasing productivity foryour dispatchers and drivers, while also reducing vehicle and fuel expenses.Not only do you increase your profit margins, you help your customers by providing a tool that shows themwhen their deliveries will arrive.
