100 Flex Business Ideas – 13 – Transportation

Posted by Charles | September 19, 2007 .

My friend’s company is relocating to Silicon Valley. His company relocate his family too. He used this Limousine Rentals company for his family in-and-out of town and recommend to me for it’s great deal of convenient and efficiency. So I registered with this site and start browsing the contents. The transportation tracking put of it draw my attention. Their online reservation system uses GPS technology to track the entire fleet, which allows customers to track the location of their ride as well as the route taken when it is complete.

I’m starting thinking sites such as TwitterVision and couple of other GeoWeb sites that using web map to dynamically display information in real-time. A Flex based geoweb mapping realtime location tracking and visulization platform would be good services offer to any company deals with location and the change of locations, such as online consumer focused fleet management.

I know there are commercial software available already such as the products from ESRI, Inc, the GIS company. However, place like the limousine rental service business is very focused. They have GPS and the data generated from the GPS tracking device, all the they need might be just efficient and reliable dynamic visualization platform. Nothing better than Flex for this task. Of cause it can go further, such as allow customer text messaging the driver directly from the Flex UI by clicking the moving automobile icon. Or, depends the situation, there might be real time webcam feed available to the customers (for you beloved pets?). The potentials go on and far.

    The application and the feature set showing on your site are very impressive.

    No URL? Check out my flexTraffic site on http://www.flex.org showcase. I am embeddeding a Google map into a flex app with a custom IFrame component. Obviously the map could be changed to Yahoo or whatever.
