Personalised Information Systems in Multi-Modal Transportation Decision Making

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The ambition of this research was to explore ways of providing personalised, context sensitive information to public transport travellers: can generic information be replaced by individualised snippets of information tailored to help the traveller with his or her decision making? Using an ontological approach, we explicitly model the relationships between various types of information and travellers and the subtasks associated with their (multi-modal) journey. This affords a means of automatic reasoning, and the automatic delivery of tailored information. This paper focusses on the spatial aspects of the research.
