Apple Patent – Routing Based on Detected Stops

A mobile device with some implementation helps in transmitting traffic information to a server for analysis and the traffic information could give indication of movement information which could include the detected stops as well as the duration of the detected stops.

Moreover this traffic information could also be used in analysing and detecting traffic patterns which could indicate the location of stop signs and stop lights. It could also help to determine the duration of stop signs and stop lights wherein the duration could be connected to the time of day or the day of the week.

The traffic information would be helpful in tremendous ways based on the traffic congestion and saving on time while travelling from one location to another. Updated mobile devices comprises of navigational software and hardware enabling users with the assistance needed while travelling from one location to another wherein on input with regards to a desired destination, the mobile device has the capabilities of presenting one or more routes from start to finish indications regarding the desired location.Apple has been granted patent on `Routing based on detected stops’.

Mobile Devices – Capabilities of Transmitting Traffic Information 

The route information would include distance from the beginning of the location to the end of the location and at times the route information would also be inclusive of the estimated time span needed to travel to the said distance which would depend on the distance and the speed.

The user could select the route based on the distance or the estimated time limit though this would not be accurate due to the volume of traffic which may or may not be known or included in the time limit. Mobile devices, in some implementations, also have the capabilities of transmitting traffic information to server for analysis which could include movement information with detected stops as well as the duration of these detected stops.

 Moreover the traffic information could also be analysed in detecting the pattern of the traffic indicating locations of stop signs or stop lights as well as, to determine the duration of stops at stop signs and lights.

Graphical User Interfaces

The duration of the stops can be related with time of day or day of the week and navigational routes in some implementation can be considered based on stop signs or stop light information which may include the delay related to the detected stop signs and stop lights.

Certain implementations provide better accurate travel time estimates which can be calculated when stop signs or stop lights information is included in route information.

 Faster routes with better options are determined when these information are included in the route determination as well as the best time to travel in order to avoid stops, can be determined with the help of this information.

The disclosure explains several GUI - Graphical User Interfaces in carrying out various features, workflows or processes that can be presented on various electronic devices which may include but not limited to desktop computers, laptop computers, computer terminals, tablet computer, television systems, smart phones and e-book readers.

Some of the electronic devices also include touch sensitive surface which can process various simultaneous functions of inputs like processing data related to pressure etc. These processes could facilitate gestures with various fingers inclusive of swiping and pinching.
