"Safety and Security issues with Non-motorized Transportation: An Examination of Potential Planning, Design and Technology Solutions"
Abstract: The goal of this research is to examine potential deterrents to increased physical activity in an urban environment and identify possible applications of technology as solutions. While 65% of daily work associated personal trips and 44% of non-work associated personal trips are considered to be within reasonable walking and bicycling distance, as a mode share, non-motorized transportation accounts for approximately 9% of the total daily personal travel. The discrepancies in the number of personal trips that are possible via non-motorized transportation and those where non-motorized means of transportation were actually used are substantial. The benefits of a risk exposure safety model and a non-motorized safest route guidance technology that provides personalized traveler information based on user risk tolerance are explored to examine opportunities for increasing the use of non-motorized transportation.
BIOGRAPHY Stephen is a PhD student in the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). His current research interest is integrating the intelligent travel applications with non-motorized transportation for the relief of congestion and vehicular dependence. His advisors are Dr. Piyushimita (Vonu) Thakuriah (Urban Planning) and Dr. Jakob Eriksson (Computer Science). Prior to his studies he worked for the Cook County Highway Department as a Highway Engineer for several years in various aspects of Civil Engineering: Drainage and Utilities, Construction and Transportation Planning.
