    Traffic Jam application

    Makor has developed a location-based traffic jam application ( US patent 6,480,783 and US patent 6,615,130 ) that will provide mobile phone users the quickest route from journey starting point to destination taking into consideration real-time traffic jam conditions including corrections on demand based on driver current situation. Additionally, it will collect and analyze real–time traffic jam data for governmental agencies, municipalities, city planners and mobile advertisers.

    Mobile Location

    Another Makor development is a mobile location positioning application that determined a location of mobile phone holder with a maximal accuracy using 3D mobile phone coordinates. An US patent 6,577,946 has been received for a new method of obtaining and continuously updating mobile location information, the information used as an input for the traffic jam guidance application, and US patent 6,901,264 has been received for a new method of determining mobile station positioning in cellular communication networks application.

    Traffic Signal Timings Optimization

    Makor has developed a system ( US patent 6,539,300 ) for controlling and adjusting phase timings at all signalized intersections within a given geographical region with the purpose of allocating more green light time for roads with heavier traffic flows at the expense of less loaded roadways and, by doing so, to relieve the most jammed parts of the network at the expense of its less loaded parts. Makor will sell the traffic flow information to governmental agencies in order to help them to control traffic flow by optimizing traffic lights system.

    Traffic Speed Violation Detection Wireless Phone Network-Based System

    Makor has developed a system ( US patent 7,801,512 ) for automatic real time traffic speed detection method and system based on wireless phone network capable of detecting a precise speed of the moving vehicle, comparing the received speed with the speed limit for the certain segment of road, determining if the vehicle is moving over the maximal speed limit and generating speeding violation ticket to the owner of the vehicle. This system utilizes a cell phone network in which the location data obtained from moving vehicles is collected continuously and input into the system. This eliminates the need for using high cost devices requiring large capital investments and considerable work force, and/or developing a dedicated mobile wireless information gathering fleet.

An US patent 7,379,890 has been received for the Per-Store Price Optimization software solution while there is a patent pending for the In-Store Advertising Optimization system

    NPV Optimization

    Makor has developed a project-scheduling optimization application (NPV Optimization) taking in consideration the maximum Net Present Value (NPV) of the entire project.

    By developing NPV Optimization application, Makor offers cost-effective, easy-to-use, easy-to-be-deployed process management solution.

    We are seeking for a strategic partnership to integrate our application in other NPV projects. We are inviting construction, manufacturing companies participating in large projects to inquire about the application

    Main features of the application are:

    - The NPV Optimization application works as macro built-in in MS Project.

    - We take in consideration every task with money receiving or paying.

    - We optimize the dates of cash-moving transactions that related with proper tasks.

    - The application gives an advantage for company that participates in big projects in saving cash resources in execution of the project by optimizing task scheduled.

    - This application should be especially suitable for construction companies

    School Scheduling Optimization

    Makor has developed a School Scheduling optimization application for optimally assigning classes into times and classrooms, i.e., the optimization algorithm chooses the timeslot and room for every class event optimally and probabilistically.

    Main features of the application are

    - One of the main objectives is to minimize a number of days for teachers and for students (i.e., if it is possible that a particular student will be at school only 4 days a week and not 5 – the system will obtain that solution).

    - The algorithm that we developed is based on Ant Colony Optimization (ACO). ACO is a metaheuristic proposed by Dorigo. The inspiration of ACO is the foraging behavior of real ants. The basic element of ACO is the use of a probabilistic solution construction mechanism based on stigmergy.

    - There are a number of soft constrains in the algorithm and a number of hard constrains as well.

    - Hard constrains are constrains that make solution generated by an algorithm infeasible. Suitable solution is the solution that will not violate any hard constraints. Examples of hard constrains are: number of classrooms, number of chairs in each classroom.

    - The soft constraint aims to increase the quality of the already feasible solution. The soft constrain is run only if the solution is feasible. Examples of soft constrains are: number of teachers, number of students.

    - The algorithm takes in consideration all school-relevant input; the total number of students, teachers and classes.

    - Type of class is also considered (lectures and seminars are different types of class)

    - For each event a list of possible rooms is created (this is done by analyzing room sizes, features provided by rooms, and also a number of students attending each class event, and features required by each event).

    Automatic Real-Time Air Traffic Control System And Method For Maximizing Landings / Takeoffs Capacity Of The Airport And Minimizing Aircrafts Landing Times

    Makor has developed an automatic real-time air traffic control system and method for maximizing landings / takeoffs capacity of the airport and minimizing aircrafts landing times. Main features of the system are :

    - US Patented (US patent 10,037,704),

    - The system could be used either as an automatic system or as a decision-support system for ATC personnel.

    - System working parameters can be modified in a real-time mode, thus giving the air traffic controllers the flexibility to manage the system.

    -Due to minimizing the runway delays and maximizing the runway throughput – airport capacity is raised, workload on tower controllers is reduced, airlines’ fuel consumption and operating costs are reduced and, therefore the pollution is reduced also.

    - The system is designed in such a way that it can work, under safety standards and regulations, for all airports for a variety of runway’ lengths, separation intervals and distances, final approach point lengths and heights, initial and final approach speeds, slopes, safety time intervals between landing and/or takeoff, takeoff duration, etc.
