Found in: IEEE Pervasive Computing
By Francesco Calabrese,Santi Phithakkitnukoon,Dominik Dahlem,Giusy Di Lorenzo
Issue Date:October 2011
pp. 101-104
On 12 June 2011, the first International Workshop on Pervasive Urban Applications (PURBA) was held in conjunction with the International Conference on Pervasive Computing (Pervasive 2011) in San Francisco. The workshop aimed to bring together researchers a...
 
Tracking Trash
Found in: IEEE Pervasive Computing
By Santi Phithakkitnukoon,Malima I. Wolf,Dietmar Offenhuber,David Lee,Assaf Biderman,Carlo Ratti
Issue Date:April 2013
pp. 38-48
Using active self-reporting tags, the authors followed 2,000 objects through Seattle's waste management system. By making the waste "removal chain" more transparent, they help reveal the disposal process of everyday objects, highlight...
 
PURBA 2013: workshop on pervasive urban applications
Found in: Proceedings of the 2013 ACM conference on Pervasive and ubiquitous computing adjunct publication (UbiComp '13 Adjunct)
By Dominik Dahlem, Francesco Calabrese, Giusy Di Lorenzo, Neal Lathia, Santi Phithakkitnukoon
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 1183-1188
This is the proposal for the Third Workshop on Pervasive Urban Applications (PURBA 2013). The workshop aims to build on the success of the previous workshops organized in conjunction with the Pervasive 2011 and 2012, to continue to disseminate the results ...
     
Mining temporal patterns of transport behaviour for predicting future transport usage
Found in: Proceedings of the 2013 ACM conference on Pervasive and ubiquitous computing adjunct publication (UbiComp '13 Adjunct)
By Carlos Bento, Gerd Kortuem, Marco Veloso, Reza Rawassizadeh, Santi Phithakkitnukoon, Stefan Foell
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 1239-1248
information systems which are centred on the individual transport user. Especially, in dense urban cities where it is hard to oversee complex transport networks that are subject to frequent changes, maintenance and construction works, travellers want to be...
     
Exploring relationship between taxi volume and flue gases' concentrations
Found in: Proceedings of the 2013 ACM conference on Pervasive and ubiquitous computing adjunct publication (UbiComp '13 Adjunct)
By Carlos Bento, Marco Veloso, Santi Phithakkitnukoon
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 1229-1238
With the rapid increase in size and population of urban areas, it becomes important to understand urban environmental influencers so that better informed decisions can be made for more sustainable urban environments. Taxis represent one of the urban dynami...
     
Gaussian process-based predictive modeling for bus ridership
Found in: Proceedings of the 2013 ACM conference on Pervasive and ubiquitous computing adjunct publication (UbiComp '13 Adjunct)
By Arto Klami, Carlos Bento, Marco Veloso, Petteri Nurmi, Santi Phithakkitnukoon, Sourav Bhattacharya
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 1189-1198
The dynamics of a city are characterized, among others, by the traveling patterns of its dwellers. Accurate knowledge of human mobility patterns would have applications, e.g., in urban design, in the optimization of public transportation operating costs, a...
     
Urban mobility study using taxi traces
Found in: Proceedings of the 2011 international workshop on Trajectory data mining and analysis (TDMA '11)
By Carlos Bento, Marco Veloso, Santi Phithakkitnukoon
Issue Date:September 2011
pp. 23-30
In this work, we analyze taxi-GPS traces collected in Lisbon, Portugal. We perform an exploratory analysis to visualize the spatiotemporal variation of taxi services; explore the relationships between pick-up and drop-off locations; and analyze the behavio...
