Researchers Wei San Loh and Robert Noland used data collected online to understand the used electric vehicle (EV) market.
The researchers investigated the relationship between people who worked from home during the pandemic and how often they walked before, during, and after COVID.
In this study, researchers Hannah Younes, Robert B. Noland, and Clinton J. Andrews used traffic camera footage to observe the behavior of over 700 shared e-scooters and privately owned bicycles in Asbury Park, New Jersey. The authors discuss policy implications with regard to safety and gender differences between the two modes of transit.
The researchers fielded two surveys in New Jersey during the pandemic and included questions on what respondents did with time saved from not commuting as well as which activities they wished to see continue after the pandemic subsided.
Using survey data collected in New Jersey, we analyze the frequency of bicycling and respondent perceptions of the safety of various bicycling facilities.
The results of this pilot data collection effort provide insights on the potential use of the latest sensor technology and computer vision algorithms to understand travel behavior for new and emerging transportation modes.
We suggest that the current groundswell of support for street changes represents a rare opportunity to implement street design changes that support pedestrians and outdoor activities.
We analyze factors associated with the decision to grocery shop online and whether this will persist post-COVID using data collected via a representative online panel.
This report identifies the training needs of the public transportation industry.
Abstract We analyze the effect of a bicycle lane on traffic speeds. Computer vision techniques are used to detect and classify the speed and trajectory of over 9,000 motor-vehicles at an intersection that was part of a pilot demonstration in which a bicycle lane was...
Abstract The used EV market is growing as more EVs penetrate the market. To examine who is purchasing used EVs and what concerns they may have, we deployed a survey focused on owners of used EVs. Data was collected online via posting the survey to used-EV-related...
We investigate the relationship between people who worked from home during the pandemic and how often they walked before, during, and after COVID. We find that people who worked from home during the pandemic had the largest increases in walking frequency compared to...
Abstract Micromobility usage has increased significantly in the last several years as exemplified by shared e-scooters and privately owned bicycles. In this study, we use traffic camera footage to observe the behavior of over 700 shared e-scooters and privately owned...
