  • Patent number: 10664770
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a system for routing vehicles in a vehicle fleet includes a location assignment module comprising computer hardware and a routing module. The location assignment module can be configured to iteratively: determine whether quotas are met for a plurality of territories based at least on locations assigned to individual territories of the plurality of territories, and in response to determining that the quota is unmet for one or more individual territories, assign one or more additional locations to the one or more individual territories having unmet quotas based at least on a proximity of the one or more additional locations to a different reference location associated with each of the one or more individual territories having unmet quotas. The routing module can be configured to generate routes including the locations assigned to the individual territories for vehicles in a vehicle fleet.

  • Patent number: 10528062
    Abstract: A computerized vehicle control system for fleet routing includes a fleet of vehicles where each vehicle in the fleet of vehicles is configured to travel over streets and including an engine and wheels. Each vehicle further includes an in-vehicle electronic device comprising digital logic circuitry and a port configured to couple with a vehicle computer installed in the vehicle and in communication with a plurality of sensors disposed about the vehicle. The in-vehicle electronic device further comprises a display. The computerized vehicle control system further includes a vehicle management system comprising memory and computer hardware and configured to communicate over a network with each in-vehicle electronic device in the fleet of vehicles.

  • Patent number: 10311385
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a system includes a memory device and a hardware processor. The memory can store multiple locations positioned along a network of streets in a geographic region. The hardware processor can assign some of the multiple locations to multiple territories associated with multiple vehicles by iteratively: determining whether an allocation threshold is met for the multiple territories and, in response to determining that the allocation threshold is unmet for at least two of the multiple territories, assigning one of the multiple locations not yet assigned to the multiple territories to one of the at least two of the multiple territories. In addition, the hardware processor can generate multiple routes connecting the multiple locations for the multiple vehicles so that each of the multiple routes connects the locations of the multiple locations assigned to one of the multiple territories.
