A Webinar on Smartphones and Travel Behavior

Webinar Date: Thursday, April 19, 2012  2:30 PM ET

Webinar Description: Smartphones with built-in GPS provide an opportunity for major changes in travel surveys. GPS or combinations with other location-based technologies such as Wi-Fi, cell tower triangulation, and Bluetooth offer opportunities to experiment with approaches to collect  travel and activity behavior over longer periods of time, to combine these data with attitudinal or stated preference surveys, and to use measured behavior as a feedback mechanism for influencing behavior. Some recent approaches have included passive data collection combined with prompted web-response, with inferred travel mode and trip purpose. Another approach has been to design an active data collection where respondents enter information for each trip or based on a “random moments” approach.
