The three entrepreneurs of klarx are running an online platform for renting construction equipment. By combining satellite navigation information and construction site location data, the Internet platform is able to calculate which machine of which construction rental station is the closest available, in order to get the best deal on rental, insurance and delivery costs.
Via GPS tracking, the company can find the closest logistician who can pick up and deliver the machine. The algorithm of the company can predict the time of delivery to the construction site in real-time and additionally provides builders with a live update on the arrival time. Through this platform, builders have access to 150,000 machines, delivered at the highest speed, best price and transparent traceability, as it is working with almost 1000 professional suppliers of heavy-duty construction vehicles.

ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria
The ESA BIC Bavaria seeks entrepreneurs using space technologies in a non-space environment. That does not mean rocket science, but applies to multiple application fields such as navigation and positioning, communications techniques, Earth observation, materials, processes, signals or robotics.
