Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DETECTING AND CLASSIFYING RECURRENT STOPS OF A VEHICLE FLEET
Abstract:
A method and system for identifying recurrent stops of a vehicle fleet having a plurality of vehicles. The method comprises retrieving historical GPS tracks of the vehicle fleet over a period of time; detecting stops made by the vehicle fleet along travelled routes that are associated with the historical GPS tracks; constructing a coverage area that covers the travelled routes; discretizing the coverage area into a plurality of cells; determining whether a cell is a recurrent stop based on a fleet stay period associated with that cell; and classifying a determined recurrent stop into a plurality of categories.
