Abstract

See full text

A method of using locational information for vehicles to determine the cost of traveling on transportation segments is disclosed. The transportation segment costs calculated may be used for many purposes such as providing the lowest cost travel path between two locations at a given time or in general. The cost also may be used to assign tolls and congestion pricing. In addition, the data may be used to determine when a certain vehicle has become less efficient and may require maintenance.
