We’ve all had a negative experience with a travel company or a transport service at some point in our lives.  In some cases, service providers are directly responsible for these shortcomings while in others the company has no fault due to events that are beyond its control. The aim of the My-TRAC project is to make travelling easier and more comfortable through different modes of public and private transport. The goal of the project is to create a platform that will record the travelers’ data and will simulate the route they want to travel.

The platform will allow users to introduce information on their trips, before, during and after they occur, in order to improve their experience and advise them on the route they should take to reach their destination. These recommendations will consider various factors, such as traffic density, weather, best parking, etc. Morevoer, it will help transport operators to offer a better service thanks to the data obtained by the system.

The My-TRAC Project is financed by the European Commission (H2020-S2RJU-2017), whose partners include the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Sparsity SL, the Technische universiteit Deft, Aethon Symvouli Michaniki Monoprosopi IKE, Experis ManpowerGroup, STRA LDA, ATTIKO METRO AE and Union int. Transports public and the BISITE Research Group of the University of Salamanca.

Without a doubt, an interesting project that will improve our travel experience. I’ll keep you informed on the progress of this project.
