This post will also be EGU Session ITS1.8/SSS1.1/EOS2.3/CL5.10/HS12.7/SM3.3 Display D2462 at EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online. We will participate in the chat on Monday, 4 May 2020, 10:45–12:30 to discuss our approach and findings.
Improving the provision of information for traffic management and environmentally conscious driving
The CITRAM project aims to improve traffic quality in cities with the help of floating car data provided by citizens. In the course of the project, the partners develop a set of coordinated tools addressing the aim of CITRAM. The citizen science platform enviroCar is used for the collection of floating car data (FCD) in three German cities. This FCD is used in newly developed postprocessing services that derive traffic quality characteristics as valuable input for traffic planers. To support citizens in an eco-friendly driving manner, the consortium also developed a traffic light assistant app ([ui!] ECOMAT). This enables a foresighted driving style in urban traffic. In order to collect a variety of trajectories, citizens are encouraged to collect data in designated campaigns while driving their day-to-day routes with combustion and electric cars. These collected trajectories are anonymized, stored and published under an open data policy in a central server.
