Operations are important for maintaining daily functions of a bikeshare system (BSS). Here, we analyze and try to measure the efficiency of operating activities of bikeshare through data analytics. We take the valet and corral service as an example of
The Smart Transportation Blog is hosted by our innovation research group to share a common vision from our research and basic industrial applications, and to make our dream of connecting world for a better life come true via smart and scalable solutions in transportation and logistics.
In this blog, we use data visualization and data analytics to provide some basic understandings of the origin-destination (O-D) flows between stations in a bike-sharing system. Part of this blog is adapted from the following research paper: X. Xie and Z.
In urban mobility, travel or trip speed is important. For each bicycle trip, its bikeshare use time provides an upper bound of travel time. Particularly, for the utilitarian O-D trips, the bikeshare use time approaches the travel time if there
A platform specializing in geospatial data is often referred to as a Location Platform (LP) or Location Based Services (LBS) platform. Different from Geographic Information System (GIS), which is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present
Although bicycling and walking were not used extensively as travel modes before, they have been showing a fast increasing trend of being adopted and used for recent years according to transportation data. More people would like to bike or walk to
Growing of smart IoT has generated many major impacts on transportation development, of which one underlying big story is the thriving of big data driven smart transportation nowadays. We are moving from IT to data technology (DT) time, and we
Smart Internet of Things (IoT) in transit service has public transits connected to the networks accessible via internet. The networks connect to each other also the external environment to share data picked up by sensors on the transits themselves, offering
The applications of the Internet of Things (IoT) have been growing dramatically in recent a few years. According to IDC, the transportation sector will be among the first to see a significant growth from the IoT, and the global IoT market in
Today’s city has a dramatically accelerated pace and rhythm in motion, which requires a greatly improved transportation and logistics service. Many solutions of Internet of Things (IoT) have been proposed to develop the urban mobility and meet the requirements in
The WIOMAX Smart Transporation Blog is hosted by our innovation research group to share a common vision from our research and basic industrial applications, and to make our dream of connecting world for a better life come true via smart and scalable
