Transporting or travelling from place A to place B can be quite a journey.
Unexpected terrain. Inconsistent road conditions. Unfamiliar locations. Tight turnings.
Various vehicles on route to destination which might be impossible to reach with their vehicle type.
Can the vehicle that is sent to certain location for a particular purpose reach this location?
Can a big truck make the turn in a corner in the road leading to its destination?
Or in case of an emergency, can a fire truck enter the alley?
Data can save Your journey
Route-info must contain width, height-restrictions, weight-restriction, climbing-angles and turn-angles and type of soil; all of which can be retrieved from GPS data.
For the vehicle, this would be its length, width, height, weight, turning circle, outswing, maximum climbing-angles and types of soil it can drive on.
