Measuring mobility with smartphones

The DLR MovingLab provides a survey method which is based on mobile devices for questions concerning transport and mobility research.

Using mobile devices, such as smartphones for example, opens up completely new possibilities when surveying mobility data. The precise position of a person can be defined several times per minute using positioning and movement sensors.
