The need to give the user an opportunity to follow off the beaten track is very essential today. There are many popular destinations all over the world, which hides many interesting nooks and crannies. These need only to be shown to people - secret alleys, doorways and rediscovered places, which can deliver to users new experiences.
The above consideration results from the fact that tourism has become too mainstream these days, people are headed towards the places everyone goes. Closed or overcrowded places of interest, sudden changes in weather, or bad air condition when a long walk is planned? All of it can make you mad! We’ve asked several people how they can escape from the following mainstream tracks.
Based on the received insights, we figurate an idea in which we believe that sightseeing can be an unusual and sustainable way to experience local destinations.
Our application, which we called Trawell, is a dynamic route planner which resolves the problems of a traditional traveler. We don’t want to duplicate the already beaten paths and places, it's time to show new places in a modern, dynamic and efficient way.
An app offers new trials, routes, new experiences, a new vision to traditional journey and extends the existing tourist offer. No more uncertainty or queues during the journey. Trawell will propose the closest place to visit based on user location according to preferences, current forecast, mood, air pollution and overcrowding.
All of it with gamification elements!
Let’s imagine that people want to visit a specific city and find an interesting destination point. They usually use TripAdvisor, Google, or read other user blogs but such a resource doesn’t help to determine journeys in a dynamic way. If a user had an application that would make a choice for him based on his preferences, which provides a possible unique location to visit taking into account the number of people, which wants to see that at the specific time . Moreover, let’s imagine that after arrives, he will have a challenge to complete, based on which he gains points. This will make his journey more pleasant, interesting, attractive and unforgettable!
Are you ready to dive into our app? Traditional travel will turn into a new action. (Re)visit Europe and gain new experience with the Trawell app!
🛰️ EU space technologies
We use the Galileo navigation satellite system to ensure independent high-precision user position, which will give information about destination point, and it will allow, to check if a user arrives at a place, and complete the challenge. Location performance is very important for dynamic routing.
Moreover, with satellite data provided by Copernicus platform, we check if trial is nature or urban based on data from Sentinel 2, and air quality based on Sentinel 5.
