Title (EN) SIMPLIFYING GPS DATA FOR MAP BUILDING AND DISTANCE CALCULATION
(FR) SIMPLIFICATION DE DONNÉES DE GPS POUR LA CONSTRUCTION DE CARTES ET LE CALCUL DE DISTANCES
Abstract:
(EN) A tracking server receives GPS data from a location tracking device located in a vehicle. The GPS data describes a path that is representative of a pathway of the vehicle used to complete a trip from a starting location to a destination location. The tracking server identifies noisy GPS data included in the received GPS data and revises a portion of path corresponding to the noisy GPS data. The tracking server may update a map database to include one or more road segments associated with the revised portion of the path. Furthermore, the tracking server may calculate a fare for the trip based on the revised path.
(FR) Selon l’invention, un serveur de suivi reçoit des données de GPS d’un dispositif de suivi de position situé dans un véhicule. Les données de GPS décrivent un chemin qui est représentatif d’un trajet du véhicule servant à achever un voyage d’une position de départ à une position de destination. Le serveur de suivi identifie des données de GPS de bruit incluses dans les données de GPS reçues et révise une partie du chemin correspondant aux données de GPS de bruit. Le serveur de suivi peut actualiser une base de données de cartes pour inclure un ou plusieurs segments routiers associés à la partie révisée du chemin. En outre, le serveur de suivi peut calculer un tarif pour le voyage sur la base du chemin révisé.
