The objective of PROVAMO was to develop software prototypes for automatic travel mode identification with mobile devices such as smartphones or passive GPS trackers. 

The prototypes were validated in a field test under real-world conditions. Analysis of the data quality and the results of an online survey on user acceptance revealed both promising results and useful recommendations for future technology-based surveys. The project results were a major pillar of AIT’s solution for capturing travel demand with smartphones and Travel Mode Identification.
