Paco Gorina Posted January 8, 2017 Share Posted January 8, 2017 In Spain we have formed an Asociación de Usuarios de Mobilidad Personal (User Association of Personal Mobility) and in talks with the administration, shops we are seeing the lack of hard data when talking with the administrations. This is specially important now that many cities are defining bicycle lanes and other restricted ways, We believe that EUC's are a great commuting device, cheap and environment friendly and very easy to use with public transport but lack real data how people are using the devices, how are their driving styles and we need a lot of information about security and specially breaking/stopping. We would like to use applications like Gyrometrics or WheelLog to get anonymized data with a minimum fuss for the user (of course some involvement is always needed, as selecting when is a commuting ride, a pleasure one or just le's go to make the speed record ). Most of the information should come from the analysis of speed and distance data, as fast accelerations/deccelerations may define a driving style or an incident. Not all EUC's are giving the same data but speed, distance, battery use and current are available in most. Pitch may also be interesting to detect some situations. I would like all people that think it is an interesting project, useful for the community to gent in contact in this topic to allow defining : Concret objectives (ex: Defining driving styles, number of incidents per km/mile, distances traveled, breaking performances, etc...) Analysis methods that may be able to help (statistical, classification, etc.) Base data we would need Anonymization methods to be used and recruitment protocols ... Please see that there are really two big groups of concepts : Technical (ex.: Breaking performance...) Social (ex.: How we use them, driving etiquette...) Bridging the gap may provide a great tool to talk with the administrations and the designers of the EUC to not only get better machines or more suited to our use but also convince the administration of its future as a good personal transport system. Thanks to everybody and really excited to start this new project Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
