ورقة مؤتمر

The use of technology in urban transportation has a great impact in achieving the better mobility, which reflects on the improvement of the economy and environment at cities. Such use would require massive utilization of transportation-related data within a smart city framework, in which smart transportation forms one of its basic pillars. A pilot application of technology in Palestine has been made to study and analyze the pedestrian-related problem in crossing the busy arterial street in the study area in front of An-Najah National University New Campus in Nablus. This has been done through the analysis of spatio-temporal data collected using mobile phones’ GPS receivers. The collected data have been used to investigate the behavior and pattern of pedestrian movement and pedestrian speed. The impact of pedestrian street crossing behavior on the street capacity has been found inputting the collected data into the specialized Synchro software. The collected spatio-temporal data has been used to represent the pattern of pedestrians movement using ArcGIS software, where the coordinates have been analyzed using Spatial Analysis Tools including Linear Average Mean and Hot Spot Analysis Tool.
