Description & Coverage
Description:

The ability to communicate with anyone at anytime, anywhere, necessitates a need to provide reliable, resilient, and sustainable applications to support the evolving uses of mobile technologies.

Movement-Aware Applications for Sustainable Mobility: Technologies and Approaches focuses on the use of location sensing technology and its wider applicability in supporting sustainable mobility, and presents current research on developing innovative approaches for gathering, representing, storing and analyzing movement data sets being generated from location sensing technology. Offering a unique opportunity for learning about how different techniques are being used to develop new movement-aware applications, this reference work gives students, researchers and practitioners the opportunity to acquire new concepts in the production, awareness and use of sensors, data, and information products for supporting sustainable mobility.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Mobile ICTsc
  • Mobility Intelligence
  • Mobility Prediction
  • Movement Data Collection
  • Privacy issues
  • Responsive Transport Systems
  • Sensor Discovery
  • Smartphone Usage
  • Spatiotemporal Pattern Analysis
  • Ubiquitous Travel Environments
Reviews & Statements

This book offers alternative thinking on demand-driven mobility initiatives and is a must read for all those interested in the future of mobility and transportation.

Editor/Author Biographies
Monica Wachowicz, after receiving a Ph.D. in Geography from the University of Edinburgh in 1995, she worked on spatio-temporal modelling for ubiquitous computing at the University of Cambridge, Computer Sciences Department in England, for two years. She then took a research fellow position at the Pennsylvania State University before joining the Wageningen University and Research (WUR) in 1999. In 2007 and 2008, she was a visiting Professor in the LatinGeo Group at the Technical University of Madrid, Spain. Her main research interests include the application of mobile sensor networks, the analysis of movement behaviour, and context modelling and reasoning over space and time. For the last decade, she has been working on policy, research and educational issues at European and national levels, aiming to address the needs in sustainable mobility and environmental management. Working in international funded research projects has provided her with the experience of operating in multidisciplinary teams from government, industry, and international organisations. In addition, one of her most rewarding experiences has been in teaching students from different cultural backgrounds and nationalities. She is currently the President of AGILE (Association of Geographic Information Laboratories for Europe) and the European Editor of the International Journal of Geographic Information Science edited by Taylor & Francis.
