To help the people who took part in our case studies for the Sixth Sense Transport project we asked the cartoon artist Kevin Allen to make some comic strips to help us describe what sorts of experiences we might expect if we used Sixth Sense Transport applications. The research explored four areas of research:
- Tourism – sharing of resources within visitor communities on campsites
- Primary Education – Walking School Buses and child drop-off and collection
- Urban Logistics – supporting the flow of goods across Oxfam stores
- Internet of Cars – how car number plates can be used to build social networks
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.
