Naturalistic Bicycling Behavior Pilot Study

The objectives of this project are to: (1) Develop a cost-effective Bicycle Data Acquisition System (BDAS), capable of collecting key naturalistic bicycling behavior data under various environmental conditions. (2) Recruit 100 participants from the Tampa Bay area to participate in the naturalistic bicycling behavior pilot study. (3) Collect an estimated 3,000 participant-hour naturalistic bicycling behavior data and develop a database to be stored for analysis. (4) Analyze the collected naturalistic bicycling behavior data based on the six specific research topics identified in task 5 and provide the results of the analysis. (5) Develop a process to use the collected naturalistic bicycling behavior data to conduct bicycle behavior research and data analysis. (6) Provide research findings and recommendations from this pilot study to benefit future large-scale naturalistic bicycling behavior studies.
