A GPS data storing, route calculation, route comparison microservice.
I would like to explore the posibilities of what can be done with the gps data that each agent stores for themselves.
First how to store such data.
Then find out if there is a way to compare these routes that agents record daily, in a distributed way, without the need for a central point where the comparisons take place ?
The use case would be to pair people with very simillar routes to enable for example:
- carpooling of neighbours that share an almost identical route to work but dont know about each other
- pairing demand from a postal package sender - with other user who is traveling, or planning to travel in the same trajectory as the package should.
- calculating meeting points of package delivery workers to exchange packages that need to change direction etc…
or have a look at Shareful
How would handling and encryption of the position data look? …to keep the positions of users private, but still be able to compare routes of all users in a circle of for example 5km?
Zero knowledge proofs come to mind but I am not sure if and how it can be utilised, and how big are the holes that my logic around this has :)) Therefore I need more brains to look here
I hope that my english is understandable.

Resources: Basic structure and related ideas documented
Similar app or site: dont know
I am at…: Idea phase, could have many use cases if its possible to build.
Also in need of a design session to create schematics and consider options.
Various, not much coding
Commitment: Right now I would commit to a few design sessions to see where interest is at. @ViktorZaunders hope you are not angry that I copied a bit of your happ description here but I really did not know what to write here Let me know when you are free to have a call.
What do I need: Talk to technically oriented people well versed in the structure of holochain.
