  • Bike Route Purpose Classification and Route Choice using GPS data (Advisor: Vanessa Frias-Martinez)
    We developed a system to classify the purpose of the bike trip given the GPS data ofthe route undertaken.
    Our baseline system comprised of spatio-temporal features of the trip.

    road network and graph-based features and demographics of the rider.
