I am working on developing a custom routing solution for Motorcyclists in India.
Caveat: I’m not a developer myself by profession, but have been learning the basics and playing around with Graphhopper’s routing API. So please excuse my ignorance. I also couldnt find literature on this on any documentation.
My question: Does Graphhopper’s routing engine consider the impact of road curvature in ETA calculation? Consider 2 routes A and B between 2 points:
Route A: 10 km length, of which 6 km is through a hill with significant curvy sections and gradients
Route B: 10 km length, skirts the hill by going around it. Only one 90 degree turn and the rest of the road is straight
If both roads are of the same “Road class”, Route A should take longer than Route B to account for vehicles slowing down for sharper curves. Is this factored into the engine?
I tried testing this on GH maps but dint see any difference in ETA.
Can this be built into the engine while running a custom model?
