The shortest path to happiness

Daniele Quercia, Rossano Schifanella, Luca Maria Aiello
2014 Proceedings of the 25th ACM conference on Hypertext and social media - HT '14  
Based on a quantitative validation, we find that, compared to the shortest routes, the recommended ones add just a few extra walking minutes and are indeed perceived to be more beautiful, quiet, and happy  ...  beautiful, quiet, and happy.  ...  ( §4.3) Validation We compare how our recommended paths differ from the shortest ones in terms of average beauty, quiet and happy scores.  ...

Beyond the Shortest Route: A Survey on Quality-Aware Route Navigation for Pedestrians

Panote Siriaraya, Yuanyuan Wang, Yihong Zhang, Shoko Wakamiya, Peter Jeszenszky, Yukiko Kawai, Adam Jatowt
2020 IEEE Access  
However, path cost expressed in terms of length and distance (i.e., the utilitarian qualities of travel) is only one attribute which could be used in route recommendation.  ...  Navigation systems often aid users when traveling in unfamiliar locations. Current navigation systems tend to focus on identifying the shortest or fastest routes between two points.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT This work was supported by JSPS KAKENHI grant numbers JP17K12686, JP19K20279, JP19K12240, SNF (Swiss National Science Foundation) grant number P2ZHP2_175019 and the Japanese Strategic Information  ...

Roadscape-based Route Recommender System Using Coarse-to-fine Route Search

Koji Kawamata, Kenta Oku
2019 Journal of Information Processing  
To reduce the computational cost, we propose a coarse-to-fine route search approach that consists of a roadscape-based clustering method, roadscape cluster graph, coarse-grained route search, and fine-grained  ...  The results also show the validity of the roadscape-based route recommendations. Furthermore, the results show that using a coarse-grained route search can significantly reduce the route search time.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported by JSPS KAK-ENHI, grant numbers JP15K12151 and JP16H05932.  ...

SafeRoute: Learning to Navigate Streets Safely in an Urban Environment [article]

Sharon Levy, Wenhan Xiong, Elizabeth Belding, William Yang Wang
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We evaluate SafeRoute and successfully improve over state-of-the-art methods by up to 17% in local average distance from crimes while decreasing path length by up to 7%.  ...  Given access to recent crime reports in many urban cities, we train our model for experiments in Boston, New York, and San Francisco.  ...  One such variety considers both distance and either happiness, beauty, or quietness when generating paths by re-ranking a top-k list of shortest paths according to the second objective [15] .  ...

Towards a Persuasive Recommender for Bike Sharing Systems: A Defeasible Argumentation Approach

Carlos Diez, Javier Palanca, Victor Sanchez-Anguix, Stella Heras, Adriana Giret, Vicente Julián
2019 Energies  
The proposal aims to persuade users to choose different routes from the shortest route between a start and an end location.  ...  More specifically, it aims to achieve a balanced network of pick-up and drop-off stations in urban areas with the help of the users, thus reducing the dedicated management trucks that redistribute bikes  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...
