  1. 1. GPS Data Collection Setting For Pedestrian Activity Modelling Adel Bolbol Fernández Tao Cheng Department of Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering UCL
  2. 2. Outline • Background – Research Area – Positioning Sensor Devices – Scenario • Why – Epoch Rate Detection? – Pedestrians? • Test – Data – Method – Limitations • Observations – Positional Error – Route Length Error – Average Speed Error – Start & End Error • Conclusions Background Why? Test Analysis Conclusions
  3. 3. Background: Research Area Location Information Activity Recognition “Sensor Data” •Diaries/logs GPS GSM Wi-Fi RFID •Algorithms Inferring Trip Trip Start Transport Trip Route Purpose & End Mode Modelling •Spatio-Temporal Human Activity •Travel Behaviour Background Why? Test Analysis Conclusions
  4. 4. Background: Positioning Sensor Devices Travel Data Wi-Fi, GSM GPS & RFID Indoor Wide High Long Life Small Size Coverage Coverage Accuracy Battery Non- Logged Data Real Time Interactivity Desirable Properties Interactive Background Why? Test Analysis Conclusions
  5. 5. Why Pedestrians? 1. Almost every journey starts and ends in the “Pedestrian” Mode (Walking) 2. Unlike vehicles, No Traffic Routing rules are followed Background Why? Test Analysis Conclusions
  6. 6. Why Find Best Epoch Rate? “Epoch Rate” The frequency at which GPS measurements are taken “Data Collection Rate” (e.g. every 30 seconds) “Capture Rate” Is the more data the better? When is data too much? & Where is the threshold? Practicability of battery requirements? Best epoch rate for a realistic, accurate, battery efficient representation of human behaviour Background Why? Test Analysis Conclusions
  7. 7. Scenario 1. Route Detection Walk 5 2. Detection of MoT 3. Start & End Locations 2 Work Bus 4. Trip Purpose GPS points User GPS Walk 3 Home – Work Home Walk Trip 4 Tube 1 Background Why? Test Analysis Conclusions
  8. 8. Why Find Best Epoch Rate Detection? 10S 1. For Route Detection Epoch rate = 10 Seconds Background Why? Test Analysis Conclusions
  9. 9. Why Find Best Epoch Rate Detection? 20S 1. For Route Detection Epoch rate = 20 10 Seconds Background Why? Test Analysis Conclusions
