The emission mobilityscope: personalized data collection for agile urban planning

K. Shankari

We have built an initial version of an open source mobilityscope or transportation meter that can track end to end travel patterns using smartphone sensors and user input. The travel patterns can be used to encourage sustainable transportation choices at the personal level, and to plan infrastructure that removes barriers to energy efficient travel at the aggregate level. The mobilityscope is easily customized to the needs of a specific campus, and is integrated with a game that can be used for tailored challenges.
