Routing/Travel Time Analysis

Jump to: navigation, search


Routing algorithms use a path-cost function to find the fastest/shortest/most economical route. The path-cost function for searching the fastest route usually estimates travel time by using speed limits or curvature of the roads. The Travel Time Analysis project aims to provide more accurate travel time estimation based on GPS traces.


The travel time analysis project offers several tools to process and analyze GPX files. Dataflow among these utilities is shown on the diagram.

Sample Results

The Analyzer was tested on simulated data as well as on the real dataset.

GPX files were provided by J.R. Peterson and data acquisition was sponsored by Cloudmade - Thanks!
