16th: Achieving supply chain excellency by providing high precision ETAs

synfioo-logo-whiteSynfioo, the ETA expert, taps into an extensive list of external and internal data sources to assess if certain events can cause delays for each individual transport. Synfioo can also connect to all carriers and subcarriers and receive departure, GPS and drive time information automatically. Synfioo then predicts the ETA (Estimated time of arrival) for all transports, alerts all relevant parties if there are disruptions to the plan and provides routing alternatives that can be acted upon immediately. Since Synfioo is a pure backend service, the information provided is integrated into existing IT-systems, e.g., the transport manager sees the information in the environment he is familiar with. In essence, Synfioo facilitates transportation planning by providing relevant information to better manage the delivery time window. That allows transportation planners to concentrate on their core tasks and to increase their productivity.

Privacy-preserving Whereabouts in Anti-Doping

csm_tubIT-rot_786e2df3edStarting with the use-case of anti-doping and athletes‘ whereabouts management in the current system ADAMS, the talk explores some ideas regarding privacy-preserving technologies and self-determination using geofences. Furthermore the talk will give an overview of geolocation representations and geocodes systems, such as Geohashes, Open Location Code, S2, MapCode, and the Universal Transverse Mercator coordinate system. Besides the anti-doping use-cases, other scenarios will be explored and should lay the ground for a fruitful discussion on geocoding, whereabouts, and privacy.



2002, Sebastian Zickau submitted his diploma thesis during a project at the IT-Service-Center of the Technische Universität Berlin (tubIT) where he worked as a student research assistant. The focus of the thesis was on e-mail encryption using smartcards. After he received his diploma, he continued to work at the tubIT Service Center as a research assistant. During this time, he contributed to several security, policy, and access control projects, such as TUBIT. In 2008, Mr. Zickau started to work at the University of Reading in England for two years. There he joined the EU-funded Hydra Middleware project (now LinkSmart middleware) in a research group at the School of Systems Engineering. My main focus was on security and policy aspects and context functionalities during the realization of the Hydra software along with work on project demonstrators and general research. In March 2012, Sebastian Zickau joined the Telekom Innovation Laboratories in Berlin, as a research scientist at Prof. Dr. Axel Küpper’s chair Service-centric Networking (SNET). He contributed to the BMWi- and BMBF-funded projects: TRESOR (Cloud Computing in the health sector), Curcuma (location-based access control) and the running PARADISE. His research in PARADISE focuses on ubiquitous computing, location-based access control, and privacy aspects within an anti-doping use case. He is currently writing his doctoral thesis about these topics.



GeoMonday 2017.4 – Building Materials Logistics & Geographic Optimization

geocom_Logo_RGB The distribution of concrete is one of the most complex logistics management tasks. Ready-mix concrete has a very short shelf life of approx. 90 minutes and small and large order quantities must be delivered quickly, accurately and as cost-effectively as possible to geographically widely distributed and frequently-changing unloading points. Through the use of geo information, the various operational processes of the building material logistics can be optimized.

Babak Toloue Tehrani is responsible for transport and logistics projects and products at Geocom Deutschland GmbH. His main focus is on integrating geo-functionality into applications and processes for the logistics iBabak_Toloue_Tehranindustry. The customization of street data for routing and optimization tasks within ArcGIS based on specific use cases has been the focal point of his work in the past decade.
