GeoIT Wherecamp Conference 2018
The 8th GeoIT Wherecamp Conference focuses on the latest research insights around GeoIoT, GNSS, digital mapping, (autonomous) mobility and spatial intelligence of the GeoIT domain including industry and academic institutions. 52°North presents work done on enviroCar – a Citizen Science platform for Sustainable Traffic.
enviroCar is an open platform for collecting and analyzing car driven tracks. The collected tracks consist of GPS positions enriched with additional sensor information by utilizing the vehicle’s inertial diagnostic capabilities. Based on the sensor information, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are estimated for petrol cars. Users have full control of their collected tracks and can share them in an anonymized fashion via an open API. Various analysis tools support the exploration of the data, e.g. in map-based views or time-series charts.
This talk provides an overview on the enviroCar platform. It presents results from previous projects using enviroCar including an evaluation of traffic lights along major roads in Mönchengladbach. Finally, it illustrates current research challenges by introducing the CITRAM project, a project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure.
