Description of the technology
Our technology enhances location-based systems by allowing more flexible route planning, easier integration of real-time data from multiple sources and interactive route search.
In the first step, the data is collected from the different sources and processed. Engine algorithms find the most efficient route which includes the required waypoints, such as an ATM, and can cross-reference with real-time databases, such as ATMs currently out of cash. Our technology possesses efficiency and scalability in order to resolve queries immediately over large amounts of data. It enables the processing and integration heterogeneous data from multiple sources, such as flower store location from yellow pages, and traffic data from a news website.
In the second step, an interactive route search is conducted. Upon arrival at each entity, the user provides feedback specifying whether the entity is indeed relevant to the search. Computation of the next entity to be visited may be done based on the feedback so far.
- Reaction to real-time events along the route
- Able to process imprecise and probabilistic data into database and as user queries
- Allows a route search over several heterogeneous data sources simultaneously
- Allows interaction with the user.
Location Based Search: search engines, Yellow Pages, local search sites (e.g. Yahoo).
Interactive Route Planner: map sites (with traffic directions), real estate, shopping.
Traffic Planner: supply chain management vendors, mobile resource management vendors, traffic sites.
