Abstract

See full text

Travel directions may be provided with an estimate of the amount of time that it takes to traverse the route at various times of day. In one example, data is collected regarding the traffic along a route, as well as other factors that may affect the time it takes to traverse the route. The collected data is associated with a particular time, so that it is possible to know, for example, that traffic moves at an average speed of X from 1-2 p.m., an average speed of Y from 2-3 p.m., and so on. Directions may be presented to a user in a way that reflects the varying amount of time that it takes to traverse a route at different times of day. For example, a chart or graph showing how travel time changes throughout the day may be presented.
