A DIGITAL ECONOMY RESEARCH PROJECT FUNDED BY THE UK RESEARCH COUNCILS
Sixth Sense Transport investigated how travel decisions could be enhanced using social networking principles and smartphone technology to create 'visibility' of transport options in time and space
We understand the extent to which behavioural change in transport habits and practices can be facilitated through the creation of a new form of ‘transport network’, based on extending social networking principles to transport users.
The project has developed a suite of mobile phone apps for each of the corresponding research contexts. Watch videos and read details of the projects aims, key findings and outputs.
The 6ST team comprised researchers from the universities of Southampton, Edinburgh, Salford, Bournemouth and Lancaster.
