The mission of TRACE 

The mission of the TRACE project is to assess the potential of movement tracking services to better plan and promote walking and cycling in cities, and develop tracking tools that will fuel the take up of walking and cycling measures.The project targets established measures to promote cycling and walking to the workplace, to school, for shopping purposes or simply for leisure.
More particularly, TRACE will assess the potential of ICT based tracking services to optimise the planning and implementation of such measures and enhance their attractiveness and potential impact. Issues such as data privacy, cost, interoperability, financial/tax incentives, infrastructure planning and service concepts will be addressed. Read more
