Abstract

The study ‘Cooperative Positioning for Real-time User Assistance and Guidance at Multi-modal Public Transit Junctions’ (InKoPoMoVer) aims at a better understanding of passenger movement at multi-modal transit situations for providing improved passenger assistance and guidance. By using a novel Differential Wi-Fi (DWi-Fi) approach through intelligent Cooperative Positioning (CP), algorithms can be generated, which considerably increase the accuracy of person tracking, allowing for the derivation of movement patterns. Due to user support smoothly transit at the stations is enabled, thus the gap in current multimodal transport information systems where routing is not performed at the junction itself is closed. Addressing ethical and usability aspects will ensure user-friendly results. In this article, the concept of transit assistance is introduced followed by a comprehensive discussion of the suitable CP localization techniques and sensors as well as the implementation strategy.

Keywords: Cooperative Positioning; Transit Situations; User Assistance and Guidance
