Description

short description of the application (one-two sentences)

A technology platform for implementing a large scale VTBC program (voluntary travel behaviour change) for promoting sustainable alternatives for transport.

deployment

status of deployment (for example: real-life project, testing, demonstration, …)

testing

Target population

general, public transportation, users, car drivers, truck drivers, children, cyclists, …

general population

software type

open-source (in order to make unique campaigns) or proprietary software

proprietary software

transport mode

which modes of transport can be monitored (bicycle, public transportation, car, …)

Different modes of transport, such as the car, by foot and public transportation.

coordination

who can launch a campaign

There is no possibility to participate and launch your own campaigns.

Sensing technologies

which type of sensors or methodes are used to obtain data

GPS

quantitative: what kind of data is measured

speed, distance, noise, location,…

location

what type of qualitative data is gathered

through a series of pull-down menus activity types, company involved and travel attributes can reproduce a form of activity-travel diary.

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.)

The time spent in in- and out- of home activities (for different purposes and company). Travel behaviour is analyzed for different travel mode options, for each mode travel times, costs, distance travelled, CO² emitted (motorized modes) and calories burned (active modes) are calculated.

reporting method

which reporting method is used (for example: website or directly on the smartphone’s app, heat maps, dashboard, and/or reports)

The information is sent to each individual via mail and to a personal webpage of the project website that each user can view after logging in. The website contains a leaderboard, maps with past destinations and routes, and a personal scoreboard.

visualisations

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

Qualitative representation of the collected and calculated data through the personal webpage which contains visual feedback regarding the travel behaviour in comparison to others.

incentives

self-monitoring, gamification, rewards, social networks,…

Self-monitoring travel behaviour, activity (burned calories) and carbon footprint, gamification by adding leaderboards and compare personal results to a social networks.

applicability of results

are the results useable for policy-makers and how can they obtain this information?

not defined

limitations

gaps and limitations of the campaign or application

Rapid battery consumption of the device and occasional crashes.

remarks
