Triona Releases New Version of Transport Routing Engine

5 February 2018

Triona released a new version of its Transport Routing Engine(TRE) in January 2018. The release includes several new features and some performance enhancements.

The new version of TRE includes releases for Triona BikeRouter (route calculation for bicycles and pedestrians), Triona CarRouter (route calculation for cars, trucks, and other motorized vehicles), OSM2Net, and TNE2Net.

Both CarRouter and BikeRouter include performance enhancements for Windows and Linux (Debian and RedHat), improved logging of measurements, and extended capabilities for logging and tracing to MQTT servers.

Other new features are:

  • Triona CarRouter has improved and extended functionality for handling feature data along the route including options to calculate toll costs according to various time window rules and allow or block traffic depending on property attributes.
  • Triona BikeRouter includes fixes and enhancements for reading data from OpenStreetMap including the capability to parse and handle complex areas built up from relations.
  • Functionality to dynamically update external data sources (currently enabled for Norwegian Traffic information and Toll station costs) has been implemented in the Triona CarRouter.
  • An improved speed model has been introduced into the Triona CarRouter to better predict vehicle speed depending on horizontal and vertical curvatures.

TRE is a highly configurable routing engine that can be easily integrated into other systems running on Windows or Linux. TRE’s components can calculate optimal routes for vehicles (bikes, cars, trucks, buses) as well as for pedestrians. It forms the basis for Triona's Distance Service, where TRE can be configured to optimize the route depending on the vehicle's weight, height, and length.
