ORcycle - Capturing Real-Life Trip Data to Improve Biking
Presented by Miguel Figliozzi, Ph.D
ORcycle is a smartphone app designed to provide feedback about bicycle routes, infrastructure and crashes/accidents.
The Oregon Department of Transportation collects some bicycle/pedestrian data, but the quality and quantity of bicycle data are not as abundant as the data collected for motor vehicles. In particular, there is scant information regarding bicyclist routes (origin-destination) and the perception of users regarding the adequacy of existing bicycle facilities. A smartphone app can be used to collect new and better cyclist data in a cost-effective way.
Dr. Figliozzi will present on the development of the app and some preliminary results that have been collected.
