Extracting trip statistics from passive RFID detection and active vehicle location
The availability of large data feeds provide new avenues for describing public transport systems. In this work, we extract trip statistics of tagged vehicles using RFID detection data in different stations and time series geospatial data for jeepneys in General Santos City. Approximate average speeds were obtained for vehicles travelling between stations with assumptions on the paths taken by the vehicles. Instantaneous speeds can be calculated from the GPS data for segments of interest and average speeds can be computed by isolating points near the stations. However, since there is minimal overlap for some segments of interest with the jeepney tracks, only a small number of average speeds could be computed for the GPS data.
