Digitisation in Transport System and Mobility Services
Project title: SPOT, Smartphone-based travel data collection
Implementing sustainable transport solutions, reducing transport emissions and energy consumption and achieving a modal shift away from the conventional private car are main goals for many major metropolitan areas in the world. In order to achieve these goals it is very crucial to understand the individual travel decision-making behaviours and implement the right urban and transport intervention policy measures. The success of a transportation policy itself depends on an accurate description and prediction of aggregate flows as well as the disaggregate travel behaviour of individuals.
This project aims to refine, test and deploy a prototype of a smartphone application that has been jointly developed by the KTH Transport Science & Urban Planning Departments. The results of the tests will be compared with data collected with traditional paper-and-pencil survey method.
This project involves KTH, Sweco and Linköping University and funded by Trafikverket (the Swedish Transport Administration).
The team consists: Jenny Widell, Andreas Allström, Ida Kristoffersson (Sweco), Yusak Susilo, Gyözö Gidovalvi, Adrian Corneliu Prelipcean (KTH), and Clas Rydergren (Linkoping University).
