Autonomous Vehicle Scheduling

Autonomous vehicles make things easier for everyone. Businesses and their customers no  longer need to depend on human drivers.

People are unreliable. Sometimes, they work hard and do a good job. Other times, they make  mistakes as individuals or due to lack of proper training. Some drivers get tired too easily, or are  plain lazy. No matter how much planning you put into your routes, it’s hard to know what you’re  going to get when you’re dealing with the unknown “human” variable of day-to-day productivity.

Autonomous vehicles take the human element out of the equation. They don’t make the same  mistakes over and over again. They always work at 100% efficiency and do what you instruct  them to do.

But, while autonomous vehicles are able to drive on their own, you still need to tell them where  they’re going.

Designing your routes and setting up your schedule can be complicated. You must take many  different factors into account, including customer availability, road restrictions, traffic patterns,  and more. This process can take hours - which is why Route4Me’s scheduling and routing for  logistics intense businesses is useful for both autonomous and non-autonomous vehicles.

Actually, this process only takes hours when you try to do it by yourself. With Route4Me, all you  need to do is enter the locations and availabilities of your customers, and then all your optimized  routes will be ready in a matter of seconds.

We will put your stops in the optimal order, and we’ll help you determine the best day and time  for each stop as well. Also, if you plug in the cost of fuel and other expenses that are of interest  to you, we’ll show you changes you can make to your routes that will save you money.

Of course, your schedule shouldn’t be set in stone. Life is often unpredictable. On any given  day, there might be a million reasons to change your routes, such as a last-minute order  cancellation or request for a pick-up.

Another advantage to Route4Me is that, with our platform, you can make a change to a route,  re-optimize it, and send the new route back to your autonomous vehicle in an instant. It’s the  flexible technology you need for the erratic nature of the real world.
