Development and Demonstration of a System for Using Cell Phones as Traffic Probes

In response to a request for proposals from Transport Canada under the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Research and Development Plan, Globis Data Inc. and its team consisting of Bell Mobility, Profilium, the University of Waterloo, and MIxpertS Inc. proposed a project to develop, deploy and test a prototype system for the use of cell phones as traffic probes. This is the final report for that project. The project is innovative because it leverages the capability to accurately determine the position of modern cell phones working with the Bell Mobility network. All cell phones currently sold by Bell Mobility have a built-in Global Positioning System (GPS) chipset that can, when augmented by the Bell Mobility network, determine their position to a relatively high degree of accuracy.
