The aim? To increase and optimise the use of ICT tracking services for cycling and walking in cities.

More particularly, TRACE assessed the potential of ICT-based tracking services to optimise the planning people riding bicycles inside bicycle lane beside skyscraperand implementation of such measures and enhance their attractiveness and potential impact. Issues such as data privacy, cost, interoperability, financial/tax incentives, infrastructure planning and service concepts were also addressed.

Dedicated TRACE tracking-based tools to promote behaviour change and support mobility planning were tested in eight pilot sites: Breda (NL), Agueda (PT), Southend on Sea Borough (UK), Bologna (IT), Luxembourg-Esch (LU), Belgrade (RS), Plovdiv (BG) and Flanders (BE), and evaluated in terms of impacts, success factors and benefits, while preparing for their full commercial exploitation. To that end, common, flexible and open access tools were developed, which address related ICT challenges and enable thethree people walking near high-rise building during sunset development of products based on tracking services tailored to the requirements of specific measures by market-oriented application developers.
