    Abstract

    Route guidance and navigation services have been widely attracting researchers and application developers due to the serious problems of traffic congestion and the ceaseless need to improve the driving experience. Motivated by such driving concerns, this paper proposes a real-time, dynamic route guidance system with the main focus on the driver safety and satisfaction. As a unique feature compared to other existing systems, the proposed driver-centric route guidance (DCRG) system considers the driver behavior in the route guidance process for the sake of boosting the safety levels on roads. The system also considers the driver preferences targeting a personalized satisfying driving experience. As most drivers prefer traversing the fastest and healthiest route to their destination, the DCRG system takes into account as well the real-time traffic and road conditions while guiding drivers towards their targeted destinations. Performance evaluation of DCRG shows significant improvements in the travel time, on-road safety, and preference satisfaction levels compared to the shortest and fastest route guidance schemes.
