Clustering based Transfer Detection with Fuzzy Activity Recognition from Smart-phone GPS Trajectories

Das, R. D., Ronald, N., Winter, S. (2014), Clustering based Transfer Detection with Fuzzy Activity Recognition from Smart-phone GPS Trajectories, 17th International IEEE Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems. IEEE, Qingdao, China.

This paper introduces an adaptive clustering-based transfer detection framework. Existing transfer detection algorithms are based on a walking-based approach. But in a walking-based approach it is difficult to set a deterministic walking threshold. However during transfer people generally move slowly or wait for a while and thus the spatio-temporal points are located close to each other and tend to form clusters. To mitigate such problems an adaptive density-based fuzzy approach is proposed for detecting transfers and activities performed during transfers.

ITSC 2014, 8-11 October

iMoD is well-represented at this week’s IEEE Intelligent Transport Systems Conference in Qingdao, China.

Rahul Deb Das will present his work on automated detection of mode transfers based on GPS data. A poster by Michael Rigby on visualising pickup locations for ridesharing will also appear. Joint work by Stephan Winter with Iven Mareels (Dean, Melbourne School of Engineering) and IBM Research on personalized (leased) public transportation will also be presented.

Please feel free to contact Rahul or Stephan to organise a meeting about the iMoD project.

ITS World Congress, 14-18 October 2013

Professor Stephan Winter will be representing the University of Melbourne’s advanced transport research at the ITS World Congress in Tokyo, on behalf of MATRIx/MUC, and in conjunction with ITS Australia. He is particularly interested in talking to researchers and industry about ad-hoc ride sharing and transport on demand solutions. More details about the congress can be found at www.itsworldcongress.jp.
