Taking the European driving regulations into account with PTV xRoute

Here are some feature highlights of API Version 2.13:

  • Framework
    • Swapped the stored profile names ‘truck40t.xml’ and ‘trailertruck.xml’ to harmonize it with all other PTV products. Please note that the default routing profile keeps all values, but now refers to the correctly named ‘trailertruck’.
      Please check this addtional Blog Post for detailed information
  • xLocate
    • Support for address interpolation using single-field input
    • Improved the performance for using single-field input
    • Added support for addresses given by only a long postal code using single-field input, which is especially relevant for Ireland
      Please note that features mentioned above require a 2020.1H map or newer.
  • xMap
    • Improved the rendering performance when using Feature Layer (in particular PTV_TruckAttributes)
  • xRoute
    • Added support to calculate tour restrictions including EU drivers’ working hours and working time of EU directive 2002/15/EC. Please note that this is experimental
    • Added support to consider alternative near-by roads by using the new attribute ‘considerAlternativeNearByRoads’ together with an ‘OnRoadWaypoint’. Please note that this is experimental
    • Introduced ‘ManipulateRouteWaypoint’ to manipulate the course of a route by passing a location within a radius. Please note that this is experimental
  • xTour
    • Added attribute ‘orderGroupIds’ to the element ‘Vehicle’ to specify which order groups can be served by the vehicle
    • The tour planning results for orders of type ‘OrderWithAlternativePickupDepots’ or ‘OrderWithAlternativeDeliveryDepots’ are improved
  • xLoad
    • It is possible to combine stacking restrictions with the maximum allowable surface load on items
    • Reversed the order of the attribute ‘unloadingSequence’. The first items will be unloaded first (and loaded last)
