Custom Vehicle Types
In addition to standard vehicle types like
truck, you can also use custom vehicle types. The steps below describe this process:
- When you are modifying an overlay,
overrideoperations on the
LINK_ATTRIBUTE_FCNlayer can change the vehicle types that are allowed on this particular link. You can specify standard vehicle types like
truck, and also custom vehicle types
custom4. Use a comma separated list to add custom vehicles in addition to standard vehicles.
- For routing calls, the vehicle types
custom4can be specified instead of, or in addition to (using a comma separated list),
truck. Then the Routing API only uses the links that are allowed for (any of) the specified vehicle type(s).
- If certain vehicles in your truck fleet are allowed to use certain links, but others are forbidden, then you can override the vehicle types of these links by allowing
custom1, additionally. For routing calls, you can either specify
mode=truck,custom1so that the truck can use those links, or just specify
mode=truckto get the normal behavior.
