New Idea to get better travel time calculation driving through cities[edit]

Hello everyone,

I was realy impressed, how accurate navit calculates travel times! But when you pass through a city, the accuracy is gone.

So I thought a lot about the difference between a road crossing a small village and the same road crossing a city. Both roads have a standard speed of 50!!

But in the city, the most time is lost standing in front of a red traffic light.

So my idea:

Is ist possible to count the traffic lights standing along the calculated route and then add a variable Delay for each traffic light, to get a better result for the needed time to cross the city?

What you are thinking about such an solution?

I recommend to use the forums (using wiki credentials) to discuss this idea. AFAIK there are already some TRAC tickets about improving ETA. --Usul (talk) 20:57, 11 August 2013 (CEST)
