Understanding and enhancing mobility through IT: opportunities and challenges
2009 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Advancements in positioning and mobile systems allow for increasingly precise and continual measurements of the locations and movements of individuals and objects. These tracking and monitoring capabilities facilitate the collection of activity data and subsequently the study and support of human mobility via all modes, including walking, as well as enable the development of services and devices to support individuals’ mobility needs, and in particular for groups of special interest such as the elderly. However, the collection and use of such data also poses ethical challenges and may negatively impact privacy. This paper addresses the opportunities and discusses the challenges surrounding mobility data on both individual and organizational levels, and introduces a study being undertaken within this context.
