Dynamic route planning maps environmental zones
The dynamic route planning shows environmental zones, driving bans and temporary obstacles and offers appropriate alternative routes.
Dr. Tore Grünert
“It would be helpful to have a central street directory that shows the current environmental zones. The Federal Environment Agency, as the competent authority, only has one directory without professionally usable maps. When planning a tour, however, the prohibitions must be taken into account with foresight and flexibility, as the areas and zones can change. This is exactly what dynamic route planning does, ”explains Dr. Tore Grünert, managing partner of gts.
Impending diesel driving bans - perspective thanks to route planning
Hamburg, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Berlin? Euro 4 or Euro 5? Whole cities or just streets? From 2018 or 2019? In February of this year, the Federal Administrative Court declared diesel driving bans in German cities to be legally possible. Since then, there has been general confusion as each city has its own rules. Hamburg has already taken it seriously and in May 2018 issued a diesel driving ban for trucks and diesel cars that do not meet the Euro 6 standard. The passage restriction applies to 2 road sections over 2.2 kilometers. By the way, around 100 signs were put up for this. Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Berlin have already ordered diesel driving bans for 2019. It is expected that other large cities will follow. In view of this patchwork of driving bans, tour planning software that maps current bans and restricted zones is more essential than ever.
