Navigation Intelligence & Location Based Services

Nutzung, Qualitätssicherung und Veredelung von nutzergenerierten Geodaten für Verkehr, Mobilität, Navigation und Routing

Während z.B. Logistikunternehmen Anfahrtswege stets optimieren müssen, suchen Outdoor-Sportler nach Routen, die ihren individuellen Ansprüchen genügen. Um solch unterschiedliche Szenarien zu gewährleisten, müssen skalierbare, zuverlässige und innovative Geo-Services geschaffen werden, die maßgeschneidert auf die Nutzungsanforderungen angepasst sind. Hierzu entwickeln wir global verfügbare Services und Schnittstellen, die eine Vielzahl spezieller Mobilitätsprofile mit wesentlichem Mehrwert für den Nutzer bieten.

Unsere Leistungen

  • Verkehr- und Mobilitätslösungen, Erreichbarkeitsuntersuchungen, Datenanalyse und Modellierung in Bezug auf Mobilität und Transport
  • Entwicklung von Cloud-Lösungen sowie Schnittstellen (APIs) für spezialisierte Routing- und Navigationslösungen mit globaler Abdeckung
  • Entwicklung spezifier Web-basierter und mobiler Dienste und Anwendungen mit geographischem Kontext
  • Langjährige Expertise von OpenStreetMap-basierten Diensten und Qualitätssicherung von nutzergenerierten Daten für Ortsbasierte Dienste
  • Datenaufbereitung und –management, sowie Hosting in Deutschland unter Berücksichtigung von Datenschutz und Privacy

OpenRouteServices introduces its time-distance matrix service

The second noteworthy news this week is that we have finally introduced the much-awaited time-distance matrix service with which you can finally compute one-to-many, many-to-one or many-to-many routes for any mode of transport provided by OpenRouteService. This service basically provides a terribly fast computation of time and distance between a set of input locations. Let’s [...]

Adding Landmark based Navigation Instructions to OpenRouteService

A recently published paper (Rousell & Zipf 2017) presents a prototype navigation service extending OpenRouteService (Schmitz et al. 2008) that extracts landmarks suitable for pedestrian navigation instructions from the OSM dataset based on several metrics. In general, when providing instructions on how to get somewhere, people generally include landmarks in their instructions - “Turn left [...]

Reducing stress by avoiding noise with ‘Quiet Routing’ in OpenRouteService

Noise pollution is a growing problem in many urban environments, affecting citizens’ daily life. It can reduce citizens’ happiness, increase their stress, and even people them get sick if they are exposed to noise pollution for a long period of time. In recent studies we investigate the use of crowdsourced data to derive noise polluted [...]
