Challenge / Goal
A smart phone application (based on an existing application called CERO Challenge) is developped to follow up changes in travel behaviour among residents living in the area of Årsta. The aim is to obtain a better real-time update of transport behaviour in comparison to traditional travel surveys. This can also function as a useful information channel regarding travel demand management measures, as well as an effective way of colleting data for the evaluation of transport measiers in the area.
Three alternative programmes have been evaluated for implementing the application and one of these is now contracted and has initialized the work. The work has primarily prepared for setup and how to obtain an attractive and challenging implementation and interaction with the residents. A statistic interface has been developed for analysing users’ travel data on an aggregate systems level. A dynamic web site has been developed in order to test the functionality and design of the application. Programmers are now working on a transformation of the dynamic web site to a mobile application for Android and Iphone. Additionally, in order for users in Årsta to get information and customized feedback on how to reduce emissions from use of electric vehicles (charging stations) and more energy efficient travel alternatives, the the mobile application will be synthesized with smart guiding to alternative fuel stations.
