Calculate the best possible route
Safety, security and military authorities have traditionally planned and calculated traffic or transport routes through pen and paper, painstakingly drawing routes by hand while trying to take into account the different aspects of each route: is it wide enough, high enough, deep enough, safe enough? Taking all of the relevant information into account can be difficult, and at worst the same procedure has to be done over and over for each new plan. Navielektro offers a solution in the form or a routing service, which allows users to automatically attach tracks with a known destination to a route. Routing is performed so that the system only suggests routes that matches the safety parameters of a track (such as height, type, draught or tonnage). The routing service is also automatically capable of providing ETA information based on the selected route. The routing solution helps naval and military users to plan transport routes, while traffic authorities can enter the approved traffic routes and assign tracks to follow the best suited route. Planned routes can easily be exchanged along with other data, which allows users to send their route data to operators for validation.
Navielektro's situational awareness system can be fitted maritime routing as a optional capability. The system automatically decides which route a vessel should use to get from the current location to the destination, based on information received from voyage or port management services. Navielektro's maritime routing system is capable of interfacing to various different voyage management systems, such as port web pages and the EU SSN.
Change routes on the fly
The operator may at any given time decide to override the automatically chosen route or destination. Routes can easily be viewed on chart and manually selected for use. In case the system determines that the operator assigned route can no longer be a viable option, the system may be setup to automatically choose a new route or to prompt the operator to select a new route from a list of viable alternatives.
When performing land-based routing, the routing system obtains road network information from various services and displays it on chart as separate chart layer. Based on this information, users can employ the tool to calculate and plan routes through a simple and practical user interface. Routes can be calculated based on a number of different parameters, such as vehicle type, size, weight and speed. Users can also opt to calculate either the fastest or the shortest route, while adding waypoints and stops where necessary.
