Have you ever ordered some nice piece of technology or other expensive things online and couldn’t wait until it reaches you? Have you been curious where the ordered parcel currently is? And once it reaches you, did you want to know what happened on it’s way to you? Was the parcel exposed to temperature changes, unhealthy for the contained goods? Has it even been fallen down?
Those kind of questions were the motivation behind a recent project we conducted together with con terra, Cassini, and (most importantly) a bunch of dedicated students from the Institute for Geoinformatics. Answering such questions in a larger scale could help in future e.g. insurance companies to better assess the current risk in insured goods travelling around the world. Thus, we have collaborated with the Provinzial insurance company in this project, who gave us valuable comments, requirements, and feedback.
