Early Stage Startup





Tagline

We are passionate about making travelling smarter, greener & more fun




Product

TravelAI has built a context-sensing platform to help developers build better Smartphone apps. Our software runs on smartphones to determine how, where and when people move around. Understanding the context or situation of a user has many applications. Other than opening us up to the wearables market it also helps generate new and rich data for transport planners and service providers.

The Problem
The capabilities of smartphones are allowing developers to create a new generation of apps that automatically react to the preferences and environment of the user. This complexity and cost is beyond a developer’s core skill set.

The Solution
TravelAI’s software platform gives developers a drop-in solution to provide personalisation and context awareness for travel to enhance the experience for their users. It cuts development time, gives one solution for multiple OS, saves battery, CPU and RAM, and is maintenance free. Our smartphone software runs in the background studying speed, location and pattern of movement to automatically detect the user’s route and method of transport. Taking a platform approach to the core IP

Some live use cases:
Doshle - Mileage claims made effortless and easy, no more remembering the trips when background running does it for you. Already helping clients recover thousands in fuel VAT
WeCycle - Crowdsourcing cycling and commuting behaviour to make our roads safer and travel easier. In just 4weeks we collected 200k miles of multimodal travel behaviour ahead of a national newspaper campaign.
CarbonDiem - Using smartphones to measure the carbon impact from different travel choices. Winning international clients from media, telecom, logistics and NGOs.


Why we are ecofriendly

Scale problems require scale solutions...And per capita emissions from transport are highest in G20 countries where conveniently for us smartphone penetration is the highest- we think this is a fantastic opportunity.
Using just smartphones and our software we help discover en masse how people move around. This data is helping inform transport planners and service providers to make public transport even more attractive.
Our core IP of automatic travel mode detection has multiple uses. CarbonDiem is an example of a carbon measuring transport service that identifies travel by multiple different transport modes, and then using recognised carbon multipliers to produce a personalised and unique carbon profile for a person or employee. CarbonDiem has helped identify and log several million miles of carbon producing travel and so tens of thousands of tonnes of carbon emissions.
