Project description
The BAS-X project has the objective of moving a basic number of hours per week in the open air with as many people as possible over 45 through the 3 most popular activities: walking, cycling and running. And that through three aspects:

BAS-X offers you a suitable route at the starting place you want (whether you are a cyclist, walker or runner; whether you are in top condition or have just started building up your condition, ... whether you are at work or at home, or on holiday)
BAS-X lets you take that suitable route as a cyclist, walker, runner WITHOUT having to install an app or purchase an extra device (GPS, wearable, ...)
BAS-X will nudge you to convince you as much as possible to regularly follow a route.

Within the BAS-X project, specific efforts will be made to create a suggested route on the fly. This also means that it can be recalculated “on the fly” when deviating from the route and can take into account real-time updates of, for example, the weather / traffic. The direction in which a route is suggested can, for example, be made dependent on the wind direction or the predictions about rain / traffic.
