Already tired? Use the work logbook!

As you probably know you can consider driving time regulations for EU and US in our routing like break and rest rules for heavy goods vehicles. Up to now we assumed a well rested driver at the start of the route.

In the new version of the PTV Developer Routing API V1.18.0 it is possible to include the already conducted work of the driver from a previous route. Therefore we provide the new parameter ‘workLogbook’ in the request body of the method ‘calculateRoutePost’ to define the driving, working and travel times since the last break or rest. Maybe you recognize the same parameter already available in the Route Optimization API.

More details to this topic are available in the concept Drivers’ Working Hours or just play around with the corresponding code sample displayed above.
