Google Maps Platform Mobility services are collections of Google Maps Platform services that you use to run transportation and logistics operations for your business.
The services offers the following capabilities via APIs and SDKs:
- Addresses & Location Context The Address Capture capability is a Mobility toolkit that incorporates two primary APIs: Place Autocomplete API and Geocoding API. These APIs address a number of common problems with delivery addressing: undeliverable addresses, inaccurate address entry from consumers, and the need for adjustments to point-of-delivery locations.
- Route Planning & Dispatch The Route Optimization capability in Mobility is a toolkit that incorporates Routes Preferred API, Directions API, and Distance Matrix API. It offers enterprise-level features that solve the problem of finding the optimal order for drivers to complete their tasks.
- Driver Routing & Navigation The Driver Routing and Navigation capability is a Mobility toolkit comprised of two SDKs: the Navigation SDK and the Driver SDK. It provides enterprise-level features that embed the Google Maps experience into your driver application.
The Mobility services can be used with a trip-based or task-based model of your operations. Please refer to the reference solutions to understand these models, and pick the one suited for your business:
