name of the application
Meloni et al., 2015
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.
status of deployment (for example: real-life project, testing, demonstration, …)
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, …)
Different modes of transport, such as the car, by foot and public transportation.
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
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.
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.
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.
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?
gaps and limitations of the campaign or application
Rapid battery consumption of the device and occasional crashes.
