Distributed Travel Mode Estimation

The Danish Road Directorate (DRD) is gathering near-real time floating vehicle data from commercial fleet operator units to gather historic traffic patterns and to determine the real time state of the infrastructure. So far data has only been retrieved from regular global positioning system (GPS) units in motorized vehicles. DRD is now introducing smartphone apps to get better coverage of the road infrastructure. With this the need to estimate the travel mode of each smartphone becomes clear. This paper suggests a simple method for processing data from sensors available on most smartphones today to detect the travel mode while reporting GPS coordinates.
