How does WorkWave Route Manager Calculate Road Speed?

Last Updated: Sep 23, 2016 09:42PM CEST

WorkWave Route Manager uses data from various partners to plan for the speeds your Vehicles will be driving along their route.

We calculate driving times by using the average speeds for 5 different classes of roads (listed below).


  1. Residential

  2. Urban

  3. Motorway

  4. Rural

  5. Freeway/Highway

So, as we plan for the route, we take the average speed (note: not the actual speed) of the road type and give you an estimate of travel time. Speed limits are taken into consideration when calculating these averages. 

The actual road network is also considered, including one-way streets, pedestrian only, etc. 

You can further work with traffic speed in areas you operate in by creating a traffic profile or adjusting the total speed.
