Measuring and Modeling Cyclists’ Comfort and Stress LevelsTREC Friday Seminar Series
DescriptionSome researchers have tried to categorize cyclists’ levels of traffic stress utilizing facility or traffic data that can be readily measured in the field, such as motorized travel lanes, travel speeds, and type of bicycle infrastructure. This seminar will present data and modeling results utilizing two novel data sources: (a) real-world, on-road measurements of physiological stress as cyclists travel across different types of facilities and (b) data collected utilizing a smartphone app called ORcycle (http://www.pdx.edu/transportation-lab/orcycle). This presentation will discuss key findings and potential policy implications.
Dr. Miguel Figliozzi is a professor in the Civil and Environmental Department at Portland State University and director of the Transportation Technology and People (TTP) lab.
