10.9 CoPilot Update Now Available

Posted: 11 December, 2018 | By ALK Technologies

We have just released a new CoPilot update, which brings enhanced navigation, routing, guidance and ETAs to help maximize fleet safety, compliance and efficiency.


New Feature Highlights:

  • Side of Street: Find the optimal route to the same side of street for every stop on route for improved ETA calculations and driver safety

  • Map Routing Views: Ability to configure a driver’s map view to display colour coded routing to the next and subsequent stops

  • ETA Alerts: New API functionality to indicate a driver’s performance versus their schedule - early, on time or at risk of being late*

  • Sites: Improve routing accuracy and driver guidance by defining a site location, entrance and exit points. Boost customer service by communicating important location-specific information directly to a driver - right at the point of arrival.**

  • Driver Map Feedback: Have drivers provide direct feedback inside CoPilot to help enhance map data**

  • Place ID Search: Avoid idle wait time by having drivers search and add stops directly to their trip using a unique Place ID**

  • School Bus Vehicle Routing: Convention School Bus (48-foot) and Small School Bus (29-feet, 6 inches) routing profiles that help to ensure U-turns are prohibited and the route safely adheres to the side of street for student pick ups and drop offs.**

Truck Specific Features:

  • Driver Alerts: Advance warning for low bridge ahead if a driver’s vehicle would exceed height restrictions when driving out of route**

  • Truck Speed Limits: Updated speed limit data to keep drivers safe, compliant and within the maximum speed limits*+

  • Governor Speed: Set a maximum speed for a driver’s vehicle within truck routing profiles for a precise ETA*

  • Tunnel Codes: Improved driver guidance with tunnel category codes displayed on the map to show the type of hazardous goods that can be transported safely* Europe only***

We have also enhanced some of our existing features:

  • Motion Lock Modes: New API brings options to minimise UI interactions and driver distraction

  • Improved Guidance Instructions: Greater clarity at Complex Turns, Lane Divergence, Merge, Stay on Road, Turns vs. Ramps.

  • Enhanced Advanced Optimisation: Uses historical traffic when calculating an optimized route*

  • 50+ New API function calls: Available across CPIK and SDK integration tools including routing profiles, road speeds and trip APIs

  • Accurate Routing and ETA: Refined attributes to generate a precise ETA such as side-of-street routing, ETA alerts, governor speeds, and stop information
