Human mobility is known to follow simple reproducible patterns, i.e., humans tend to travel a few known places. Early detection of those “significant journeys” has a prospect for emerging smart applications like real-time traffic route recommendation and automated HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) systems. In this paper, we design, implement, and evaluate a mobile system that effectively captures significant journeys based solely on the embedded barometer sensor of a smartphone…
