Please provide a short description of the state-of-the-art and/or current trends in the field? How does the result fit into it?
Means of transport helping people to change their locations are only partly equipped with devices that help travellers to plan the route before their starting point and destination. One of the most widely known devices is GPS, the currently available versions of which are suitable for navigating vehicles and also for giving directions to people. The solution is aimed at providing travelling people with a universal possibility, which, by harmonising the elements of individual (pedestrian) and community transport, offers a suitable chain of different locations for the user, widening by the this possibilities available so far.



What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to?  How was it addressed before?
A problem relating to the known solutions is that it can provide users only with restricted information, as its resources are limited.




What is the potential for further research?
Practically the authors only got as far as the recognition that there are independent databases not connected to each other, and by combining the information stored in these databases according to given input conditions the task could be solved; but they did not create a device, either at hardware or at software level, which would be suitable for realising the necessary process of data acquisition – grouping – optimisation, so development should be aimed at this final equipment and the software needed for its appropriate operation.






What is the proposed method of IPR-protection? (patent, license, trademark etc.)
As here first of all a database management software product could be created, practically the IPR-protection method should be registration in the voluntary register of works and submitting a trademark application.




What are the steps that need to be taken in order to secure the IPR-protection? What is the cost of IPR-protection?
After elaborating and testing the software product, it should be registered in the voluntary register of works, the current cost of which is HUF 8,000.

The current cost of submitting a trademark application is HUF 240,000.




What is you overall assessment of the scientific maturity of the research result?
Basically the proposal only contains an idea, which is not yet a solution, so it cannot be evaluated.
