A Cycle Route Planner Mobile-App for Dublin City
Gavin, Maurice; Ghosh, Bidisha; Pakrashi, Vikram; et al.
ITRN2011: Irish Transport Research Network Annual Conference, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland, 31 August -1 September 2011 In a road network, cyclists are the group exposed to the maximum amount of risk. Route choice of a cyclist is often based on level of expertise, perceived or actual road risks, personal decisions, weather conditions and a number of other factors. Consequently, cycling tends to be the only significant travel mode where optimised route choice is not based on least-path or least-time. This paper presents an Android platform based mobile-app for personalised route planning of cyclists in Dublin. The mobile-app, apart from its immediate advantage to the cyclists, acts as the departure point for a number of research projects and aids in establishing some critical calibration values for the cycling network in Dublin.
