Vehicle Restrictions

VERSION 1.6.0

Vehicle restrictions are used commonly for trucks, delivery vans, and scooter drivers. Climate/pollution regulations are also introducing more rules for cars, such as electric vehicles (EVs) and cars that fail to meet various low-emission vehicle requirements.

The SDK provides the ability to apply those restrictions based on the user-defined vehicle profile.

The Vehicle Restrictions API is available under the TomTomMap object. To enable vehicle restrictions in your app, load the pre-defined StandardStyles.VEHICLE_RESTRICTIONS.

1tomTomMap.loadStyle(
2 StandardStyles.VEHICLE_RESTRICTIONS,
3 onStyleLoadedCallback,
4)

The next step is to define your vehicle. This can be done using the Vehicle model

1val truck =
2 Vehicle.Truck(
3 dimensions =
4 VehicleDimensions(
5 weight = Weight.kilograms(6420),
6 axleWeight = Weight.kilograms(2200),
7 length = Distance.centimeters(805),
8 width = Distance.centimeters(260),
9 height = Distance.centimeters(330),
10 ),
11 // You can define characteristics of your vehicle's load like Hazmat and ADR
12 hazmatClasses =
13 setOf(
14 HazmatClass.IntlExplosive,
15 HazmatClass.UnClass1Explosive,
16 HazmatClass.UnClass2Gas,
17 HazmatClass.UnClass3FlammableLiquid,
18 ),
19 adrTunnelRestrictionCode = AdrTunnelRestrictionCode.B,
20 )

To show restrictions:

tomTomMap.showVehicleRestrictions(truck)

Vehicle Restrictions

To hide restrictions:

tomTomMap.hideVehicleRestrictions()

To apply changes after updating the vehicle parameters:

val newDimension = truck.dimensions?.copy(weight = Weight.kilograms(8000))
tomTomMap.updateVehicle(truck.copy(dimensions = newDimension))

Low-emission zone


Low-Emission Zone

A low-emission zone is an area that restricts access to vehicles based on the level of pollutants they emit. By default, you can enable a low-emission zone using the pre-defined style StandardStyles.VEHICLE_RESTRICTIONS.

UN dangerous goods class

The UN dangerous goods class describes the categories of dangerous cargo as follows:

Explosives, Gases, Flammable Liquids, Flammable Solids, Oxidizing And Organic Substance, Toxic And Infectious Substance, Radioactive Material, Corrosives, Miscellaneous Dangerous Goods
