A Cycle Route Planner Mobile-App for Dublin City
|Title:||A Cycle Route Planner Mobile-App for Dublin City||Authors:||Gavin, Maurice; Ghosh, Bidisha; Pakrashi, Vikram; et al.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10905||Date:||28-Feb-2012||Online since:||2019-07-12T10:36:23Z||Abstract:||In a road network, cyclists are the group exposed to the maximum amount of risk. Route choice of a cyclist is often based on level of expertise, perceived or actual road risks, personal decisions, weather conditions and a number of other factors. Consequently, cycling tends to be the only significant travel mode where optimised route choice is not based on least-path or least-time. This paper presents an Android platform based mobile-app for personalised route planning of cyclists in Dublin. The mobile-app, apart from its immediate advantage to the cyclists, acts as the departure point for a number of research projects and aids in establishing some critical calibration values for the cycling network in Dublin.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Irish Transport Research Network||Keywords:||Cycling; Route planning; Mobile-app; Cycling network; GIS||Other versions:||http://www.itrn.ie/index.php?page=itrn-2011-proceedings||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||Irish Transport Research Network Annual Conference (ITRN2011) Energy & Transport Programme & Proceedings||Conference Details:||ITRN2011: Irish Transport Research Network Annual Conference, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland, 31 August -1 September 2011||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
