"The idea of time travel has been with us since ancient times. Now, the concept of time travel seems ... almost ... plausible. Today, tales of chrononauts are more imaginative and thought-provoking than ever before: new views, cutting-edge concepts, radical notions of paradox and possibility -- state-of-the-art speculative stories collected from those written in the twenty-first century. Forward to the past, back to the future -- get ready for a fascinating trip!"--Page 4 of cover.
Algorithm for Extracting Travel Diary Data from GPS Streams and GPS-TDG Software Design
Category: Global Positioning System
The focus of this research project is to develop software to automate the processing of raw GPS data and to generate outputs of activity-travel patterns in the conventional travel-diary format. The software will identify trips and characterize them by several attributes, including trip-end locations, trip purpose, time of day, distance, and speed. Within the overall focus of the research, this report describes the algorithm developed for the detection and characterization of trips from GPS navigational streams. The software design details are also presented.
