8 2 5 Y e a r s o f T r a n s p o r t a t i o n T e c h n o l o g y L e a d e r s h i p Every “n” Minutes ALK Server Builds: set U k Sends: TT(m i, m j ) for every (i,j) in U k CoPilot|Live … Send… Current Location & Destination, Last update time (42 bytes) ALK Server … Send… New TT(m i, m j ) for every (i,j) in U k (280 bytes/100arcs) CoPilot|Live … Updates TT(m i, m j ) in U k, ETA on current route, Finds new MinETA route, if MinETA “substantially” better then changes route ALK Server … Determines U k : set of TT(m i, m j ) within “bounding polygon” of (Location;Destination) k that have changed more than “y%” since last update. CoPilot|Live Sends: “Where am I”, Dest., Last update Receives/Posts: updates Computes: MinETA Updates route, if better
