name of the application
Misra et al, 2014 and Hood et al, 2011
short description of the application (one-two sentences)
Collecting of GPS data of cyclists’ routes.
status of deployment (for example: real-life project, testing, demonstration, …)
Real-life deployment via Google PlayStore, Apple AppStore and the SFCTA website.
general, public transportation, users, car drivers, truck drivers, children, cyclists, …
open-source (in order to make unique campaigns) or proprietary software
which modes of transport can be monitored (bicycle, public transportation, car, …)
who can launch a campaign
There is no possibility to participate and launch your own campaigns.
which type of sensors or methodes are used to obtain data
quantitative: what kind of data is measured
speed, distance, noise, location,…
what type of qualitative data is gathered
Trip purpose, which is important to distinguish the difference between utilitarian and recreational travel.
what kind of data is calculated
CO², cost, health ; What is the basis of calculation (e.g. reference database, European guidelines for external costs, etc.)
Distance, time, average speed, chosen route.
which reporting method is used (for example: website or directly on the smartphone’s app, heat maps, dashboard, and/or reports)
Website and smartphone-based application.
method of reporting (visualisation) of the collected data (qualitative representation can be a red or a green light, a text explaining the progress, while quantitative representation consists of numbers or statistics
The users can access their on saved trips to get an overview of maps and statistics on their own cycling behavior.
self-monitoring, gamification, rewards, social networks,…
The user could, when not recording, view a list of saved trips with maps and simple statistics such as distance, time and average speed.
applicability of results
are the results useable for policy-makers and how can they obtain this information?
Data representing the purpose, route, date and time are sent to the Transportation Authority’s servers.
gaps and limitations of the campaign or application
The mode choice utility specification for the bicycle alternative is currently a simple linear function of distance, ignoring the benefits of bicycle facilities and the dissuasive effects of hills.
other important remarks for the review, links to other projects, …
At the beginning of each trip, the user selected a trip purpose and then the phone recorded GPS coordinates until the user canceled the trip or indicated that the trip was complete. At this point, the user reconfirmed the trip purpose, entered a comment to accompany the trip (if desired), and submitted the data to the web server. Think of it as a travel survey that asks you why and where you are riding, but automatically maps your route rather than asking you to write it down from memory.// php echo wpdocs_custom_taxonomies_terms_links(); ?>
