Abstract: The system described in this paper is an extension to the standard satellite navigation systems used in vehicles. A new route planning algorithm is developed using both shortest path and simplest path criteria and then this algorithm is extended to allow the incorporation of a visit to a petrol station along the route. The choice of petrol station is based on a combination of the relative location of the petrol stations and the cost of petrol at those stations. The price of petrol at each petrol station is constantly updated on a central server which is provided with prices by all vehicles which are using the system as they pass by. The price of petrol is determined using a camera mounted on the dashboard of the car, the images from which are processed with reasonably standard OCR software. When a vehicle requires fuel the central server provides prices for petrol stations in the vicinity of the planned route.
