We propose a solution that will ensure comfortable and reliable commutes for the citizens of Indianapolis. We propose a mobile device based app pair (Automated Mobility App and Citizen Report app) to enhance IndyGo journey experience:
a. Automated Mobility App- A smart-phone mounted on the bus will have this app installed. This will app automatically uses all the available embedded sensing (cameras, accelerometers, GPS) and fuses it with other sources of data (e.g. traffic data from Cities, local weather data, local social media data, etc.) to build a mobility map of the city. The data is analyzed both in real time and on the cloud to generate insights and provide decision support. If permitted by the agency, the data can be further augmented by using existing IndyGo camera and vehicle location data.
b. Citizen Report App- A smart-phone app that can be downloaded by citizens to report any cause of discomfort during their journey.
