PTV xSERVER - Traffic Information API
TRAFFIC INFORMATION FOR FLEET MANAGEMENT
Use live traffic and historical traffic data to avoid delays and optimize route calculation and scheduling lculate and report your fleet’s emissions
Why should you use the Traffic Information API by PTV xServer?
The PTV xServer Traffic Information API is a software developer component, available as a cloud-based web service or an on-premise solution. Due to its standardized interface, the component can be easily integrated into an existing software architecture. It considers both live traffic and traffic patterns: Live traffic information is visualized on customized digital maps. Traffic patterns are visualized as hydro-graphs showing the rate of flow versus time of the day. This enables you to gain quick insight into traffic patterns, and based on this knowledge, plan detours before bottlenecks occur. A detour around a bottleneck is not possible or would not make sense? Then, the expected delay is factored into your route plan and the estimated time of arrival is revised.
Historic traffic information, also known as traffic patterns, represents driven speeds on road segments in the past. The live traffic information includes current road restrictions and incidents as well as planned road maintenance and closures in the future.
Consider both historic and live traffic information in your route planning
Configure the visualization of traffic information on personalized maps based on your requirements and taste. You would like to start working with the API immediately without making any modifications? No problem. We offer standardized map profiles that are carefully designed to fit most standard use cases as an out-of-the-box-feature.
Visualize traffic information with standardised or customised maps
The PTV Content Update Service (CUS) automatically downloads additional data like live traffic information, manages the data status and deletes obsolete data. You can choose both the update method and update frequency.

PTV xServer allow you to plan and change clusters based on locations (customer addresses, postcode areas etc.). Common use cases are the management of field representatives, the planning of warehouse locations and their delivery areas as well as delivery planning.
PTV xServer are designed for processing big amounts of data and therefore predestined for companies with an extensive field force and / or numerous locations to consider.
