Routing Service for finding the shortest, fastest and most energy efficient way.

GreenNav is an open source organisation that emerged from an university project and combines many different aspects of electromobility routing. For now, it consists of an Polymer based front end for routing, visualization and prototyping as well as a Go based back end for the database, routing algorithms and integration. The front end is made of different components to integrate all the necessary technologies to enable mobile access, prototyping of new routing algorithms, visualizations, interchangeable maps (Google Maps, Bing Maps, OSM, ....); the back end combines efficient database work with data from different sources like height profiles or temperature. It is planned to integrate traffic information, ground texture and many more in order to empower new forms of routing (e.g. stochastic routing).
