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.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
