  • Patent number: 11069229
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatuses are disclosed for predicting or estimating the value of a variable speed sign (VSS). A variable speed sign is identified. Probe data is collected at one or more vehicles in proximity to the variable speed sign. The speeds of the vehicles are included in or derived from the probe data. A statistical analysis is performed on the probe data. A speed limit value for the variable speed sign is determined based on the statistical analysis.

  • Patent number: 10417509
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatuses are disclosed for predicting the value of a variable speed sign (VSS) and determining the predicted value's associated confidence level. Highly assisted driving (HAD) vehicles may read or capture images of the VSS. The speed limit values, images, or videos of the VSS are reported and received by a network and database for analysis. A predicted speed limit value is determined for the variable speed sign from at least a portion of the received traffic data. A confidence level is also calculated for the predicted speed limit value for the variable speed sign.

  • Patent number: 10064023
    Abstract: An approach is provided for providing map independent location-based notifications. The location-based notification platform causes an initiation of at least one spatial event request for one or more location-based notifications. The at least one spatial event request specifies at least one bounded area in which at least one device is located or to arrive. The location-based notification platform in response to the at least one spatial event request, receives at least one spatial polygon. The at least one spatial polygon represents at least one geographic area that is determined based on the at least one bounded area, and the at least one spatial polygon is associated with the one or more location-based notifications or one or more triggers for the one or more location-based notifications. The location-based notification platform then causes an overlay of the at least one spatial polygon on at least one travel network traveled by the at least one device.
