Health Perception on the Adoption and Acceptance of Shared Mobility: From Now to Future

The study will focus on establishing the link between transportation choices, self-assessed health and body mass index (BMI). It will identify measures of health perception, health self-assessment as ways of collecting information predicting travel behavior focused on shared mobility systems. It aims to explore the method of developing health perception and self-assessment metric in a setting of transportation decisions. The project’s objective is to better understand how health perception and self-assessment affects the choice of using bike sharing systems and how it affects acceptance of SAV as well as to understand if the usage of bike sharing system leads to the favor of adoption of SAV. If the link between the self-assessed heath, height, weight and/or BMI is determined to be significant, health variables may become standard in mode choice and travel behavior analysis in the future.
