  • Designing and evaluating mobile personal and urban informatics applications for public transport. Tamara Chahine Honours June 2011 1Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Today TripStats: Public transport research project Background to Urban and Personal Informatics Research aims, objectives Significance and motivation Concept Methodology Evaluation 2Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Aim To determine how the principles of personal and urban informatics can be applied in the design of a mobile application to enrich the customer experience of public transport in Sydney by improving usability and accessibility of travel information. 3Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • TripStats 4Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • TripStats A mobile application for collecting and visualising personalised trip information. 5Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Goals for design Enrich the customer experience of public transport Make information about train travel more visible Encourage new forms of social interaction 6Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Cultural Probes Participatory Design Prototyping Deployment 7Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Data & visualisation For data collection and visualisation, context matters. No context, no value in the display information 8Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Social Interaction People liked learning something new about their travel habits. People enjoyed comparing themselves to others. Incorporating social + gaming interactions could be valuable to explore. 9Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Designing Mobile Personal Informatics Applications for Urban Settings Digital Cities 7 - Real World Experiences International Workshop at C&T 2011 Thursday 30 June 2011 Brisbane, Australia 10Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Background 11Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Urban informatics “collection, classification, storage, retrieval and dissemination of recorded knowledge in a city” [1] Foth, M. Handbook of Research on Urban Informatics: The Practice and Promise of the RealTime City. IGI Global: (2009) Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA. 12Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Biketastic: Sensing and Mapping for Better Biking Biketastic helps bikers find good routes and collect data to improve them [1] Reddy, S., Shilton, K. Denisov, G., Cenizal, C., Estrin, D. and Srivastava, M. Biketastic: Sensing and Mapping for Better Biking. In Proc. CHI 2010, Springer (2010), 1817-1820. 13Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Personal informatics “A class of tools that help people collect personally relevant information for the purpose of self-reflection and self- monitoring. These tools help people gain self-knowledge about ones behaviors, habits, and thoughts.” [1] Personal Informatics: http://personalinformatics.org/ 14Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • EnergyWiz Motivating domestic energy conservation through comparative, community-based feedback in mobile and social media [1] Petkov, P., Köbler, F., Foth, M., & Krcmar, H. Motivating domestic energy conservation through comparative, community-based feedback in mobile and social media. In Proc. C&T 2011, ACM Press (2011) 15Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Honours 16Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Research aim To determine how the principles of personal and urban informatics can be applied in the design of a mobile application to enrich the customer experience of public transport in Sydney by improving usability and accessibility of travel information. 17Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Questions How can the visualisation of aggregated user- generated data combined with existing information such as timetable data leverage the reliability of information? What kind of insights can people gain from sharing and social contrasting of personal data about travel habits? 18Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Objectives Background research - framing my research within the design space Design, development and evaluation of a mobile application. Analysis of findings to produce design guidelines for similar applications 19Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Motivation Using public transport in Sydney is a mostly negative experience. 20Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Population is growing and infrastructure isnʼt keeping up. http://www.smh.com.au/national/off-again-on-again-the-cbd-metro-is-off-again--well-nearly-20100119-mj6k.html http://www.smh.com.au/technology/technology-news/smart-machines-on-way-but-still-no-sign-of- tickets-20110531-1feql.html 21Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Traveller information systems have been shown to enhance the usability of public transport [1] OneBusAway: Results from Providing Real-Time Arrival Information for Public Transit www.onebusaway.org/ [2] Field trial of Tiramisu: crowd-sourcing bus arrival times to spur co-design www.tiramisutransit.com/ [3] TripView: http://www.grofsoft.com/tripview.php 22Wednesday, 8 June 2011
  • Significance Provide a starting point for similar-user generated interventions to improve the experience of public transport through mobile technologies. Present findings from design, evaluation and results as a series of guidelines for other mobile applications in the realm of personal and urban informatics. 23Wednesday, 8 June 2011
