Evaluation of people’s mobility and intermodal transport is crucial for understanding mobility and traffic in general and leads to new challenges from the perspective of computer science and especially Human-Computer Interaction. Varieties of travelers move in different travel chains. The interplay of such different systems, like car and bike sharing, local and long-distance public transport and individual transport, must be adapted to the needs of the travelers. Intelligent traveler information systems must be created to make it easier for travelers to plan, book and execute an intermodal travel chain und to interact with the different systems. Innovative means of transport are developed, such as electric vehicles and autonomous vehicles as well as the sharing economy and intermodal apps. To achieve the acceptance of these systems, human-machine interaction must be fundamentally redesigned.
EvalIUMS accumulates the different approaches for analyzing and evaluating aspects of the four different mobility modes: walking, cycling, driving and using public transport. The objectives of the 1st EvalIUMS Workshop on Evaluating Intelligent and Ubiquitous Mobility Systems (EvalIUMS) is to exchange findings and lessons learned when applying analysis methods and tools for evaluation of mobility as well as the participation of road users and represent an opportunity to connect these approaches.
EvalIUMS aims at giving an insight into modern evaluation techniques of IT-based mobility systems with a focus on intelligent and ubiquitous systems that can improve planning and the evaluation of implemented measures. The overall goal of the evaluation methods is to increase mobility experience and quality in dimensions such as user comfort, usability, safety and the overall user acceptance in urban mobility.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Methods and Approaches analyzing mobility
- Evaluation of different traffic systems
- focusing: walking, cycling, driving and using public transport
- Analyzes of Information provision along travel chains
- Information provision of active travel companion systems
- Applying Eye-Tracking Methods for mobility related evaluations
