Formatted Abstract/Summary
Travel surveys are considered to be a fundamental part of transport planning. Traditional travel data collection methods cannot always satisfy recent data intensive transport modelling methods. Conventional travel data collection methods mainly rely on the memory of respondents and impose a significant burden on them which adversely impacts on the quality and quantity of the collected data. Moreover, they call for significant financial and human resources. Recently, with the introduction of GPS devices in transport industry, GPS-assisted travel survey approaches have been proposed and employed which significantly improve the quality of collected data. However, each of these approaches has significant deficiencies which threaten their real-size employment. In this paper all conventional travel data collection methods, including self-reporting and GPS-assisted methods, are reviewed and evaluated critically. Then, based on available travel data collection approaches, a novel smartphone-based travel data collection approach is introduced and evaluated. Finally some conclusions have been drawn, which will be used for future studies.
