Abstract

Method to draw a customized map which can be shared and merged, The core idea of our invention is to innovating a new method allows user to generate a router based on their customized demands and cognitive analysis. It can provide a better approach for router in a small range, support any applications and platform with less configuration. Meanwhile, it is more efficient and collaborative. The customized map can be drawed by someone to share to others, and also user can accept maps generated with other's input layer. In future, the invention solution could also be applied with latest virtual reality technology and automated driving.

Method to draw a customized map which can be shared and merged

When we using the current GPS navigators, we may encounter some pain points like, Hard to make a customized route even when the user knows the special road condition, such as Urban road’s rebuilding, traffic jam, traffic accident. 1.

Cannot share with the customized route map. Based on the current GPS navigators, when sharing the route, all the customized information will be 2. lost. A real story for these two pain points, there is a temporary one-way street near my home as Urban road’s rebuilding, then I will tell all my friends who will come to my home how to come, but as it’s hard to combine the status into their GPS apps, many of them drive twice to finally arrive.

Cannot compatible among different GPS navigators.3.

Difficult to guide others in small range, like supermarket, residential community or somewhere similar. If someone dose not find a specific location, 4. he/she can ask others who knows it and let them to point the way, but there is no appropriate tools to remote share the route.

The Core Idea: The core idea of our invention is to innovating a new method allows user to generate a router based on their customized demands and cognitive analysis. the innovated system can be described in following steps:

1)User will input their customized demands and requirements into the innovated system.

2)The innovated system transferring user's input to a point sets in a layer which may contain many points can be used to identify a location. It will allow users to customize their local map, by manual or based on the driven routes. It will support regenerate the route with the customized conditions.

3)The innovated system will use a user defined layer and generate maps to guide the user to reach his/her locations defined in layers. User may follow this customized router map to reach their destination with their individual requirements.

4)User may export layer and share the layers with other platform's and sending customized map to their friends.

The invention solution provides routing with efficiency and cognitively. This invention could be applied with existing and IBM products, such as Watson and other products in future.

The advantage of invention solution:

1)the invention solution will be a better approach for router in a small range, such as outlet shopping mall, residence communities, and so on. All of the knowing solutions have limitation on small range navigation.

2)the invention solution will have better compatibility than knowing solutions. It can support any applications and platform with less configuration. It is better than knowing solutions, since all of the knowing solutions can only applied in specifi...
