The challenge

With Real Trip the company gfnork develops an application that takes user-defined parameters, such as destination, start time, travel duration and personal preferences for attractions – and automatically generates an optimised route based on these input parameters.

• Aggregation of Location Based Data & context for customer suited route recommendation

• Usage of mobile satellite navigation technology helps users find interesting places on the road

• Development of an algorithm for route generation based on user preferences

• Inclusion of hotel recommendations improves user convenience and allows for monetization

The solution

Gfnork UG is hosted at ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) Darmstadt, run by the German company cesah. This has provided the opportunity to consult ESA experts who have supported with technology insights and ideas to improve the system.

In addition, especially the support provided by cesah in relation to general business activities has been very helpful.
