New Idea to get better travel time calculation driving through cities

Reported by: geer Owned by: KaZeR
Priority: minor Milestone: version 0.6.0
Component: core Version: git master
Severity: Keywords: eta traffic speed


Hello everyone,

I was realy impressed, how accurate navit calculates travel times! But when you pass through a city, the accuracy is gone.

So I thought a lot about the difference between a road crossing a small village and the same road crossing a city. Both roads have a standard speed of 50!!

But in the city, the most time is lost standing in front of a red traffic light.

So my idea:

Is ist possible to count the traffic lights standing along the calculated route and then add a variable Delay for each traffic light, to get a better result for the needed time to cross the city?

What you are thinking about such an solution?

Hi, thanks for submitting this issue :)

From what I can say, I think it's possible, of course. We have the traffic light elements and I guess we can somehow extend the routing graph, to take the number of lights/crossings that had to be passed into account.

From my perspective, this is slightly related to #1047 (and maybe a dupe?) and a first step towards #570. Anybody else from the team opinions on that?

As we are currently try to find our way back to a stable version, I will park it for only for the next major release.
