I-CPIE Technical Research Seminar - Dr. Yingling Fan
Title: Measuring, Managing, and Maximizing Transportation Happiness using App-Based Day Reconstruction Method


Abstract: Transportation is an emotional landscape that we cannot avoid in everyday lives. Measuring, managing, and maximizing transportation happiness—people’s emotional well-being during trips—is an essential aspect of promoting “humanistic” (i.e., human-centered) transportation planning practices. This presentation will introduce the Daynamica app, a smartphone application that pairs objective mobile sensing with subjective human input to collect continuous and momentary data on travel behavior and experience. Using the app-generated data, this presentation will illustrate how trip and personal characteristics may affect transportation happiness in complicated and sensitive ways.

Bio: Dr. Yingling Fan is Professor of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Minnesota. She has pioneered the transportation happiness concept and developed systems to measure, analyze, and visualize individual- and population-level travel behavior and related emotional experiences. She is the Editor-in-Chief at the Journal of Transport and Land Use, Managing Editor at Urban Studies, and Chief Executive Officer at Daynamica, Inc—a company she co-founded with the University of Minnesota Venture Center.
