Abstract

Disclosed is a method that can dynamically optimize any predefined route or directions for a logistical decision maker based the on intentions and needs of the conveyor. This solution provides an interactive Global Positioning System (GPS), route traffic and incident management tools, and databases to provide real time rerouting decisions based on current conditions after an initial formulated route is prescribed. Dynamic real time information provides recommendations in a safe and early warning method to ensure continued optimized travel for both cargo and/or conveyor.

Dynamic Logistics Route Provisioning

This novel solution is not presently in use by other Global Positioning System (GPS) service providers. Mapping or logistic entities ensure a systematic method for providing safe and timely routing of goods, services, and individuals on roadways, without dangerous distractions such as reading notifications or texts, or having to make route decisions or modifications based on GPS or cell phone information with unclear impact to current travel conditions.

This method modifies and automates a typical manual decision analysis of cause and effect, but uniquely provides direct feedback with intentional optimization based on predefined criteria and requirements. This process of dynamically optimizing the route thus provides directions for a driver based upon a desired method of travel and updated route data. This is presently not in use on current systems as a preemptive or imposed routing guide. This personalized solution utilizes interactive GPS information based on real time data, map technology of traffic and weather conditions along with interactive data stores such as crowdsourcing to eliminate the stress and dangerous situations encountered with distracted driving while in route to destination.

The current method comprises the following variables, upon the traveler's selection, and the relational variables during the travel period:


• Shortest distance
• Shortest time
• Highway tolls
• Greatest use of Highways
• Traffic
• Construction

This dynamic optimized method uses all combinations of user-selected variables to provide dynamically optimized routes as the traveler is proceeding to the destination. The system utilizes a variety of databases such as traffic, construction, and emergency response. Comparative analysis is performed just prior to the original planned route on a dynamic interval to maintain the optimal route based on personalized criteria. The methodology provides sufficie...
