The greatest contributor of CO2 emissions in the average American household is personal transportation. Because transportation is inherently a mobile activity, mobile devices are well suited to sense and provide feedback about these activities. In this paper, we explore the use of personal ambient displays on mobile phones to give users feedback about sensed and self-reported transportation behaviors. We first present results from a set of formative studies exploring our respondents' existing… Expand
The Quantified Traveler: Using personal travel data to promote sustainable transport behavior
With the advent of ubiquitous mobile sensing and self-tracking groups, travel demand researchers have a unique opportunity to combine these two developments to improve the state of the art of travelExpand
Let EcoDrive be your guide: development of a mobile tool to reduce carbon footprint and promote green transport
TLDR
A mobile GPS application, EcoDrive, for iPhone that suggests the fuel efficient route to the user that supports awareness of personal transportation activities, reminds users of additional reasons for being green, and emphasize them to adopt eco-friendly behavior. Expand
Transportation Detection Using Accelerometer on Mobile Phone
Activity recognition is a dominant research area and several research systems have been constructed and tested in the user study. Most have focused on sophisticated and high energy-consuming sensorsExpand
The Quantified Traveler: Changing Transport Behavior with Personalized Travel Data Feedback
Experiments using smartphones to influence behavior have been growing rapidly in many fields, especially in health and fitness research, and studies on eco-feedback technologies. In these studies,Expand
How smart is your smartcard?: measuring travel behaviours, perceptions, and incentives
TLDR
Anonymised AFC data is used to measure the extent that financial incentives implemented by London's transport authority correlate with measurable changes in millions of travellers' behaviours. Expand
E-mission: Automated transportation emission calculation using smartphones
TLDR
A system that improves accuracy by using behavioral techniques for prompted recall on the smartphone, and aggregates the information to help detect large scale patterns is described. Expand
Gathering individual travel data with GPS-enabled smartphones : a proof-of-concept study
Policies aimed at Traffic Demand Management (TDM) rely heavily on the gathering of accurate individual level activity and travel data to understand and unpack the demand for transport. Moreover,Expand
GreenSense: Developing Persuasive Service Technology by Integrating Mobile Devices and Social Interaction for Sustainable and Healthy Behavior
TLDR
A mobile persuasive service to promote "green" sense that encourages sustainable transportation by revealing both sustainable and health information to users is proposed. Expand
Automatic data collection for detecting travel behavior: the IPET platform
TLDR
A mobile system developed both for collecting daily trips and activities information and for promoting sustainable means of transport is analyzed to assess the efficacy of the IPET platform in terms of data collection and travel behavior change. Expand
From location tracking to personalized eco-feedback: A framework for geographic information collection, processing and visualization to promote sustainable mobility behaviors
TLDR
This paper uses activity tracking data to provide people with eco-feedback on their own mobility patterns and stimulate them to adopt more energy-efficient mobility choices, and proposes a general framework to exploit location data to foster more sustainable mobility behavior. Expand

MyExperience: a system for in situ tracing and capturing of user feedback on mobile phones
TLDR
This paper presents MyExperience, a system for capturing both objective and subjective in situ data on mobile computing activities, and presents several case studies of field deployments on people's personal phones to demonstrate how MyExperience can be used effectively to understand how people use and experience mobile technology.

Conducting In Situ Evaluations for and With Ubiquitous Computing Technologies
TLDR
Traditional methods from psychology and human-computer interaction are adapted and applied to be more amenable to the in situ evaluations of ubiquitous computing applications, particularly in the early stages of design. Expand
Recreating Communities to Support Active Living: A New Role for Social Marketing
  • E. Maibach
  • Business, Medicine
  • American journal of health promotion : AJHP

TLDR
Specific opportunities for applying the social marketing approach to create active living communities are identified, and opportunities at the state and national level that will enhance the effectiveness of local efforts are identified. Expand
Mobility Detection Using Everyday GSM Traces
TLDR
This paper explores how coarse-grained GSM data from mobile phones can be used to recognize high-level properties of user mobility, and daily step count, and demonstrates that even without knowledge of observed cell tower locations, mobility modes that are useful for several application domains are recognized. Expand
Consumer lifestyle approach to US energy use and the related CO2 emissions
Abstract Historically, a sectoral approach (based on the industrial, transportation, commercial, and residential sectors) has shaped the way we frame and analyze issues of energy conservation and COExpand
When participants do the capturing: the role of media in diary studies
TLDR
How the choice of media for capture and access affects the diary study method is investigated and suggested modifications to traditional diary techniques that enable annotation and review of captured media are suggested. Expand
Professor Tanda: greener gaming & pervasive play
TLDR
It was found that character-led tailored physical activities were generally found to be the most enjoyable, while players wanted more interaction with each other and more score-based content. Expand
Stepping towards causation: do built environments or neighborhood and travel preferences explain physical activity, driving, and obesity?
TLDR
It is suggested that creating walkable environments may result in higher levels of physical activity and less driving and in slightly lower obesity prevalence for those preferring walkability. Expand
Exiting the Cleanroom: On Ecological Validity and Ubiquitous Computing
TLDR
It is found that developers have difficulty creating prototypes that are both robust enough for realistic use and able to handle ambiguity and error and that they struggle to gather useful data from evaluations because critical events occur infrequently. Expand
