Huli have implemented a route generator for outdoor activities such as cycling, that will make a route with particular characteristics (e.g. length in km, timing, locations, height climbed). The challenge is developing an approach to matching generated routes to a target route profile. This would allow a customer to specify a course from anywhere in the world, and find something approximating that (at least in terms of characteristics like those above) in their locality.
This Innovation Voucher will develop a proof of concept of three technologies for the platform:
- apply Dynamic Time Warping to match routes in on the basis of distance and height climbed profiles
- explore feature construction techniques
- potential for larger scale route generation and optimisation approach
