Comparison of WLAN Probe and Light Sensor-Based Estimators of Bus Occupancy Using Live Deployment Data

Tatiana Madsen, Hans-Peter Schwefel, Lars Mikkelsen, Annelore Burggraf
2022 Sensors  
One solution, widely used in practice, involves deploying a light sensor-based system, counting the people entering and leaving the bus.  ...  Inaccuracy with the WLAN estimator comes from a need to filter out mobile devices outside the bus and to map the number of detected devices to a number of people.  ...  Ground truth data: these data types consist of enter and exit events manually counted by a person per door riding in the bus. The events are recorded per bus stop on the bus route.  ...

Using an Internet of Behaviours to Study How Air Pollution Can Affect People's Activities of Daily Living: A Case Study of Beijing, China

Guangyuan Zhang, Stefan Poslad, Xiaoping Rui, Guangxia Yu, Yonglei Fan, Xianfeng Song, Runkui Li
2021 Sensors  
As air quality worsens, people tend to decrease their walking and cycling and tend to travel more by bus or subway.  ...  Peoples' density distribution computed by call detail records (CDRs) and air quality data are used to build a fixed effect model (FEM) to analyse the influence of air pollution on four types of ADLs.  ...  In terms of the transport mode options, except for people walking and bike-riding, we focus on people who intend to take a bus and the subway.  ...

Hanoi Public Transport—Transformation by Management Using Action Research and Behavior Setting Theory

Walter Molt
2016 Journal of Traffic and Transportation Engineering  
Success with introducing public transport needs a self-reliant leadership, which works with people in their real life situation.  ...  An urban transport system is part of the organized behavior of the people, who make use of the technical opportunities offered.  ...  Using this deficit in cost attribution, the introduction of monthly passes changes the calculus again, as once the passes are purchased, each trip for itself is a free ride.  ...
