Technologically speaking, T&Tnet will make use of a Multimodal travel and transport infrastructure (dealing with network object modelling, label correcting techniques and metaheuristic algorithms to find the shortest viable path from an origin to a destination), System intelligence and artificial reasoning (multimodal behaviour measurement, reasoning and control system (RT-MMC)), Mobile applications (iOS and Android) and a GIS social platform.
The T&Tnet project will use a user-centred approach that involves directly end-users throughout the development life cycle. Three basic principles of this approach will be followed: (a) an early focus on users and their needs, (b) evaluation and measurement of product usage, and (c) iterated design. End-users organisations (FR, SN, ZGZ) will use a variety of techniques and methods to take into account the user’s experience for the design of the product features.
The idea of T&Tnet is to provide personalised context-based multimodal and multinational social journey planning with affective capabilities and an easy to follow adaptive real time guidance making use of artificial reasoning based on an information manager (filtering and combining). This solution will allow them to carry out and solve movement tasks and problems independently. T&Tnet offers navigation/orientation adapted to the user preferences in real time which makes use of transport information (schedule, delay, occupation …), emotions, social networks and a collaborative evolutionary platform.
Expected results and impact
T&Tnet will re-invent from scratch the way the elderly move around cities and countries throughout Europe. Thanks to the social collaborative platform in which users will add geo-information (escalators, demonstrations, road works, etc.), the real-time trip planner based on personal and accessibility preferences; and the emotional learning engine at the core of the system, users will experience a seamless, adaptive, comfortable journey, both from the mobile app and the web platform.
