Drivers who lack the appropriate equipment or experience to traverse road segments with adverse conditions benefit from ensuring that their route does not pass through such segments. Else, they risk being stranded or rerouted to avoid the problematic road segments. Current routing techniques do not take into account such factors. This disclosure describes techniques to determine suitable driving routes that avoid adverse conditions, based on a user’s request, and based on information regarding vehicle capabilities and equipment availability. The routes are obtained based on combining such information with other relevant data, such as weather, terrain information, likely time of travel along a road segment, schedules and alerts for construction and closure, etc.
