A new feature ‘Smart Routing’ has been added to MapMechanics’ routing and scheduling software to increase efficiency, reduce travel times and boost turnover.

The journey times and distances can be calculated taking account of constraints such as one-way streets and low bridges.

The new application enables the user to specify direction of travel when calculating drive times, and can be adjusted to calculate speeds associated with different road networks.

It also includes a rapid swap between time of day, vehicle type or seasonal differences.

New hierarchical modelling techniques have reduced calculating time and produced faster results.
