The participation of a large and varied group of people in the planning process has long been encouraged to increase the effectiveness and acceptability of plans. However, in practice, participation by affected stakeholders has often been limited to small groups, both because of the lack of reach on the part of planners and because of a sense of little or no ownership of the process on the part of citizens. Overcoming these challenges to stakeholder participation is particularly important for… Expand

Crowdsourcing in ITS: The State of the Work and the Networking
TLDR
The ITS services enabled by crowdsourcing, the keyword co-occurrence and coauthorship networks formed by ITS publications, and the problems and challenges that need further research are investigated. Expand
Crowdsourcing-based traffic simulation for smart freight mobility
TLDR
A simulation framework is developed combined with probabilistic modeling to make freight truck a ‘smart freight’ truck - with improved mobility by being able to detour to avoid a downstream congestion on the path. Expand
Crowdsourced System to Report Traffic Violations - RoadCop: Bi-Modular System
TLDR
A framework is proposed that is based on crowdsourced model to report violations supplemented by the video evidence that can lead to much improved implementation of traffic regulations. Expand

An Empirical Survey on Crowdsourcing-Based Data Management Techniques
TLDR
This research identifies three primary considerations for improving data management in crowd sources, which are recognizing images and sentiment analysis, and enhancing human intellectual capability. Expand
Promoting Crowdsourcing for Urban Research: Cycling Safety Citizen Science in Four Cities
People generate massive volumes of data on the Internet about cities. Researchers may engage these crowds to fill data gaps and better understand and inform planning decisions. Crowdsourced tools forExpand
Citizen observatory for mobility: a conceptual framework
TLDR

Public involvement is a central concern for urban planners, but the challenge for planners is how best to implement such programs, given many difficulties inherent in the typical public involvementExpand
Crowdsourcing geospatial data
TLDR
While traditional mapping is nearly exclusively coordinated and often also carried out by large organisations, crowdsourcing geospatial data refers to generating a map using informal social networks and web 2.0 technology. Expand
Field trial of Tiramisu: crowd-sourcing bus arrival times to spur co-design
TLDR
Tiramisu, a transit information system where commuters share GPS traces and submit problem reports is developed, reflecting on the use of field trials to evaluate crowd-sourcing prototypes and on how crowd sourcing can generate co-production between citizens and public services. Expand
