Legend has it that a peasant farmer named Gordias fulfilled a prophesy by driving into the city of the Phyrgians on an ox-cart and so became their king. To commemorate the event, the ox-cart was tied to a post with an intricate, tightly entangled knot that could not be untied for several centuries. The man to unravel the knot was prophesized to become the ruler of all of Asia. Upon his arrival, Alexander the Great, after some unsuccessful struggle with the knot, drew his sword and sliced the knot in half with a single stroke and later went on to conquer Asia.

The name Gordian is based on the the Gordian Knot metaphor. In particular, movement traces have a similar entangled characteristic as the Gordian knot. The problems that Gordian solves are also (seemingly) intractable and Gordian provides effective and elegant solutions to such problems. By untangling knots of movement traces, Gordian unleashes sustainable transport solutions.
