GEOCorridor® 

Aims
GEOCorridor® is an application of TeleConsult Austria through which objects can be monitored regarding to their distance covered. Therefore, a corridor is defined in advance and the object is not allowed to leave it en route. The monitored objects are at least equipped with a TomTom LINK box that is a component of the TomTom WORK framework and provides current positioning information for the application. On leaving or re-entering the defined corridor, a notification is sent to the user.

Brief Description
GEOCorridor® is a web application that can be operated via a standard web browser.

The corridor in which the monitored object is to move is defined through a buffer around a certain route in GEOCorridor®. The route itself is described through a sequence of line features. The size of the buffer around the route can be defined by the user; that means the width of the corridor can be changed arbitrarily.

The monitoring of the objects can be done through a map section on the one hand and text-based information on the other hand. In the map view, the defined corridor and the current position of the monitored object are displayed on a background map. For this purpose, the TomTom LINK box which is used as mobile unit provides current positioning data. Requests for positioning data are carried out at predefined intervals. The application indicates for each received position how far it is away from the defined route and whether it is inside the user-defined buffered corridor or not. The user is able to determine in advance if he/she wants to receive a notification via e-mail when the object leaves the corridor (warning) or re-enters the corridor (all-clear). Alternatively, notifications can be sent via SMS.

Fields of application:

GEOCorridor® can be used if a certain route to a destination is assigned to a person / mobile / vehicle. Such requirement can result for instance from security reasons (e.g. VIP transportation, dangerous goods transports, etc.) or traffic related restrictions on a certain route (heavy goods transport, etc.).

Senior citizens in microcars can be monitored on specified routes to certain institutions like medical services, shopping centres or recreational facilities. If senior citizens lose their way or their bearings the respective whereabouts can be determined immediately via the web interface.

Furthermore, GEOCorridor® enables monitoring of children on their way to school.
